Rishikesh, India, February 14, 2023

It was nice to sleep in and I had a leisurely morning. I checked my email constantly for a message from insurance. Nothing. Then I started thinking that maybe I hadn’t bought the right insurance and they were not going to fly me home.  When did I become a worrier?  I don’t like it. Yesterday I looked through my policy and believe I bought repatriation but CAA is not World Nomads.  After my forms had been submitted for 24 hours with still no reply, I started calling. I’m not sure where they are located, I presume in Canada and I was on hold numerous times until finally 8 o’clock Eastern someone answered the phone. I was put on hold again and then transferred and now my case will be discussed with the nurse to make sure it’s safe to fly with this type of hernia. I told her the doctor knew I was going to go home to have the surgery and there was no issue so she said she would call me as soon as she knew something which I hope is tonight.

It was a beautiful day so I walked down to the Ganges.  It’s a beautiful color, before it gets to Varanasi and all the ash and corpses-

They will honestly do anything to make a rupee-

I carried on the rocks and came to a bunch of deserted hotels-

with no access up so had to walk back.  The only problem with walking down to the river is that it’s a long climb back up and I was sweaty and tired once home.

There’s another wedding tonight-

Later, I went down to the main road to The Beatles Cafe for lupper-

It’s in a lovely garden but even though there were at least 8 employees- all men, I still had to go in to get a menu then back up to the counter to order.  I hate to be writing this but I had a veggie burger and it was delicious!  It might have been the caramelized onion and fried egg but it was excellent.  Never think though that I will be looking for the recipe!

So, hopefully I’ll get a phone call tonight and get my flight booked!
