Sunset over Rishikesh. I took this in a Beetles-themed restaurant overlooking the Ganges, where I ate something that made me so sick I was in bed for two days.On the second day the cook in the guesthouse made me a bowl of congee. Whereas the Chinese version of this dish is thick and mushy, Indian congee is more like rice in soup, flavored with curry, vegetables and fresh coriander. It was delicious.
Interstingly enough, it was during these two feverish days that I came up with the ending to my script, which had me stuck for two months.
