GPS Carlos Melia at the Ganges River  |  Varanasi, India  |  Good morning everyone. Sorry but due to the tight schedule of this trip, at this moment I am only able to post brief GPS notes, but trust me, I am getting lots of material for next pots. This morning I woke up at 5.30AM and came to the stream of the Ganges River in Varanasi to see the locals take their morning bath on the waters of this river, which is consider to be the holiest waters. The reason why, for Hinduism…. because the Ganges was created coming out to itself Shiva‘s head. I must admit that I was determined to take my dip into the waters of the Ganges, but the advice of some locals, friends and some research I did, made me change my mind. So maybe is holy and maybe is one of the most polluted rivers in the entire world, but this images speak for themselves on how special and sacred this river and Varanasi are. Off to the airport in a few minutes to head to my next destination Agra. More later. CM
