Monday, Rishikesh. Kerry has a minor case of the ‘Rishikesh rumbles’ so Ian is left to re-acquaint himself with the area. There are essentially three parts to Rishikesh: the town which is someway downstream, and not too appealing; Ram Jhula, at the first suspension bridge across the Ganges, and nearest to our hotel; and Laxman Jhula, the second suspension bridge, further upstream. The latter is Ian’s destination. It is quite sizeable, all things considered, and built into the steep sides of the river. If one was planning to stay put for three months, I could think of worse places.
