EVEREST BASE CAMP WAS MY MOST EXCITING TREK

THAT UNEXPECTEDLY GOOD MEAL
When we were on the third day of our trek to Mount Kilimanjaro in 2017, the dinner that they served us was mashed potatoes, bread and salad. All of us groaned at the bland food and I said, ‘I wish we could get to eat something nice like bread pakora or samosas’. And a friend of mine said that she could convert the dinner into bread rolls. She then took over the kitchen and taught the locals how to make bread rolls. It was the best and most fun dinner we had on that trek!

Another very interesting experience was having dinner at Noir – Dining in the Dark – in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. As the name itself suggests, the entire dining experience happens in the restaurant, which is pitch dark. We were guided by the waiters, who are all visually challenged. They talk you through the three-course meal and it was a very fascinating experience to smell, feel and taste the food without being able to see it! At the end of the meal, they showed us what we had eaten, and it was interesting to see how many things we got right while we were eating them.
