The constant rains have been a blessing in more ways than one and they find it very pleasurable walking in the cool, green hills. However, the rains bring with it it’s own challenges - the biggest one being that their clothes do not dry for days! Staying put in Nashik for a few days has been helpful – they have some assistance for washing clothes, at a cost, of course! But it’s been another blessing. Another challenge has been that with the change in weather, people are falling sick! It’s nothing novel and it’s also a fact that they will recover in a few days and walk. The next few days, they will continue in the hills and it is known that they will be walking in sparsely populated areas with little or no chance of acquiring whatever supplies they need. So, they make the most of the opportunity of stocking up what is absolutely necessary for the terrain. Many of them frequent malls & sports stores and of course, the local eateries! Today’s rest comes at a time when they are not really tired… but it’s a time for some quietitude as the immediate future holds much activity with many events lined up with their entry into Gujarat!
