I like this photo, the rings in the water are from a man underwater.

Several riverside ghats are a dump, broken down and grimy, others show a bit of care and color. The goat of coarse was eating plastic.

All along the Ghats, kids smack tennis balls playing Cricket. One skinny kid at each place seems has to fish balls out of the river, tough job.

Every evening, hundreds filter down to the largest ghat to a Hindu ceremony for the dead.

To wash in the Ganges requires a wicked immune system, the stuff of nightmares in that water.

After the cow licked them clean a man rinsed them and put them back on the shelf.

I Love your journals!
Hi Sean! I have been following your journals closely. Thought you would be proud as you know I just learned to read last year. Thanks for letting all of us homebodies get a glimpse into the life of the traveller. The travel channel doesnt have the kind of global coverage you do. Miss Ya! Be careful out there.......Megan
