Cooking and Eating

February 1, 2017: The day was very foggy, so our ship could sail only slowly downstream, and we stayed aboard all day since we needed to be in Farakka by the next morning to catch our train to Kolkata.

To fill the time we had an Indian cooking lesson by Barun Kotoch, who in addition to being in charge of the ship is also a trained chef. He and an assistant showed us how to prepare typical Indian spices and how to use them in a sauce.

In the evening we anchored on another sand bar and had a pleasant surprise: an off-ship barbeque.
