The Plunge

6.13.2012

On our last day there Landon decided that since he was in Varanasi, he had to go for a swim in the Ganges River, he was not going to let the opportunity pass by.  Now he can officially say that "he went swimming in the Ganges" not a lot of things people can claim they've done.

The last few pictures are of our friend Krishna and his family.  We met him on the train and got to spend a full day with him in Varanasi.  He took us to some Buddha sites and was so generous to us.  He bought us our tickets, drinks, and a beaded bracelet to remember our time with him.  That night he took us into his wife's mother's home where they fed us.  It was something that I never thought would happen, being welcomed into an Indian home and having dinner with them.  We didn't know what we did to deserve such treatment.  They bought us every type of Indian treat, street food, and meal to try and we were stuffed full by the end of it.  Looking back on it I don't know how we were so lucky to cross paths with him, we were blessed throughout our travels. We will forever be friends with him and his family.  We still talk and hope to meet up again one day in India!
