14-March-2015: returned to Delhi but stopped a short drive from Rishikesh where lots of pilgrims were bathing in the Ganges and also where they put ashes of their relatives into the river. It was another long and "interesting" drive and we made it back into Delhi around 6pm. Had dinner at our favorite Dosa restaurant - the dosas only cost ~$2.50 each and are soooo delicious. A very popular place.
