‘THE FREEDOM I FOUND AT RISHIKESH IS SOMETHING I’VE NEVER EXPERIENCED BEFORE’
On this trip, we carried a lot of food, mostly vegetables like carrots and tomatoes. So we would take over a dhaba in the evenings, and cook food for everyone. The dhabas were only too glad because they are usually managed by one or two people, so it’s a good thing when someone else volunteers to cook. I have to say that the meals we would cook in the dhabas were the most delicious. We would make food like dal khichdi or a mixed vegetable preparation, and combine that with whatever local food the dhaba had to offer. Those meals would taste like heaven after a day in the cold river water. Otherwise, we would just have other easy to carry stuff like bread, butter, jam and stuff you can eat while on the move. We returned from that trip with such great memories of rafting, travelling and cooking together. This was a really memorable trip, but the kids just made it that much more special.
