They survived!

As the other boys were visiting the countryside, Sidhu and Rakesh got a special ticket for the rivers of Uttaranchal. Rafting Well, that is what was planned, but the holiday turned into something of an adventure survival mission.
First, we had to overcome an 8 hour hair-raising ride through the mountains of the world's highest mountain range, and not win the puking competition.
Then, avoid falling from the raft into the turbulent, icy water; when you don't know how to swim, you suddenly have a very different relationship with the liquid element...

But in the end, we shared some great moments with the boys, with campfires, stars-counting and crazy dances. And after the Dehli smog, there was nothing like breathing that fresh mountain air!
