Saifee expedition, October 1999

Sorry, no room service

It is difficult to forget the jovial face of Pooran Singh, one of the porters/guides who also used to serve breakfast and dinner. Breakfast and dinners started as social affairs at the first camp at Gangotri where everybody ate slowly and relished the food (the food also being tasty back then), but quickly moved on to become a necessary evil, with people forcing food down their gullets in a hurry, trying to get it over with and move to the warmth of their sleeping bags.
