Many bath along the Ganges. It is certainly for religious reasons. Otherwise no one in their right minds would dip into that water.
There were loads of colourfully dressed (or undressed) men, everywhere we went.
One in particular looked a bit like a Taoist priest.
Some of them appeared to the beggars. If they hold out their hands and other people give them food or money, they are beggars, correct? I apologise if my observation offends anyone.
There was this young man who rowed the 10 of us up and down the Ganges for an hour. We were impressed by his strength and skills.
Many were leisurely reading newspapers and drinking tea - or coffee.
Why are wise men always men? We did actually encounter many interesting women. More about that later.
