This was the final day. We woke up, had our breakfast and headed for our river rafting experience. It was my first time as well. Yet, I had to keep everyone's morale up.
Until he came to pick us up. It was so difficult to keep everyone on the same page. Then the car came. And it was loaded with dust and other fellow passengers. We sat and drive to the place for rafting. Seeing the place, we realised the flow was super good. And my mother and jiju were scared as hell.
We stepped down, there were so many people of all the age. Our trainer gave us a brief of, how do we go about the process. What to do and what not to. What if there is a situation and all that.
We wore our helmets and jackets. And he gave us the rowers.
After that we stepped inside the boats took our positions and started with a ganga maiya ki Jai. We had three rapids, and a 9km drive. Damn that was some experience. I swear, anyone who hasn't done it, should. And the time when he said you can get down in water. It was a rapid and we jumped inside. It was terrific. I was so sacred at first. But then I got so much at ease, having my back relaxed and body loose. That time was something, I can't get back. I wasn't thinking if anything but myself floating in water.
When it ended, I realised it had been more than two hours that I was inside water.
The rafting experience was worthy of all the pain that I had later.
We went back to our hotel , had a bath and left for Jaipur.
It was a little hectic as we had kids with ushere was jam. And to top it all, the phone got stolen.
But yes, mountains have something that make you realise that you hold a very small place in the world.
It brings you at peace. And yes, let's you explore the places in a different way.
