I spent three or four days in Rishikesh last week. Walking along the banks of the Ganga was fantastic. The river, the mountains, the yoga teachers and the breeze. This is beautiful.
And then, the wonderful street food.
We drove up to the Neelkanth Temple, and after the temple, we sat the chai shop run by a friendly old local and had some chai and pakora.
We are getting out of the pakora season, really, in my view. Die-hard fans chomp on the stuff all through the year, but for me…. it is best had in winter. Or, during the rains, with the water dripping down the tin roof of the roadside shack.
Oh yeah, now that is when pakoras and chai taste the best!
