Llama herder holidays

Stressful

Being a llama herder is pretty dull. Llamas are fairly docile to the extent that llama trekking, going hiking while accompanied by a llama, is an accepted form of relaxing holiday. Being a llama herder is pretty much that, all day, every day.

Clearly there is a market opportunity to provide llama herders with something a bit more interesting, so BorgCo are planning to offer a range of exciting activity holidays which will no doubt appeal to overly relaxed herdspeople. Two weeks in the currency dealing room of a major international bank; seemingly endless night shifts in a hospital ER in a major city; try your hand at air traffic control (learn as you go).

Afterwards you'll be glad to get back to those boring llamas ...

       I thought I’d try that phone line service where you could dial-a-llama but all I got was a Tibetan spiritual leader.

       The great thing about the llama herding holidays is that on the fourth day of the hike, you're allowed to eat the llama. Apparently.

       So, what do you eat when you're hitch-hiking, [MB]?

       //The great thing about the llama herding holidays is that on the fourth day of the hike, you're allowed to eat the llama.// That's an alpaca and not a llama. It's an easy mistake, often made, but you can remember the right version in future by thinking of the words: "al-pack-a-lunch before I set off".

       To be eaten "al-fresco" ... ?

       No, in a Honda Accord with an open sunroof.

       I herd air traffic control is the most stressful job... Is there a list somewhere?

       How much would it cost? I bet we'd get fleeced.   

       Sorry, the prices are a bit woolly at the moment.
