More info

Annapurna at 8,091 meters is the tenth highest mountain on earth and is located in Nepal. According to statistics, it is the most dangerous eight-thousander worldwide. In three successful ascents approximately one death occurs.

Common chicory, Cichorium intybus, is a somewhat woody, perennial herbaceous plant usually with bright blue flowers, rarely white or pink. Many varieties are cultivated for salad leaves, chicons (blanched buds), or for roots (var. sativum), which are baked, ground, and used as a coffee substitute and additive. It is also grown as a forage crop for livestock. It lives as a wild plant on roadsides in its native Europe, and now common in North America and Australia where it has become widely naturalized.

"Chicory" is also the common name in the United States for curly endive (Cichorium endivia); these two closely related species are often confused.
