Dimitri and Tess

Dimitri

What is your hidden talent? I’m a pretty mean juggler.

Why do you want to hang out with me? I’ve climbed two of the seven summits without injury, but on the first night of my Mtrek last year, I danced so hard that I fractured my tibial plateau. Assuming my knee is all better by August, I’m down for any outdoor activity that comes my way. And, of course, dancing.

What was your weirdest job? I spent a few months training monkeys to pick coconuts in Thailand.

Tess

What is your hidden talent? Parallel parking. Not to toot my own horn but no horns are necessary.

Why do you want to hang out with me? Because when Dimitri messed up his knee on Mtrek, I carried him around Croatia on my back so he wouldn’t have to miss out. And while I hope not to have to carry anyone in Chile, I will make sure you have a good time!

What was your weirdest job? Illustrating weeping diabetic ulcers for a pharmaceutical catalogue.
