Rocking my Keep Calm and Travel from my buddy @nomadicmatt I don’t think he meant I should row down the Ganges in Varanasi. This is the sacred section of the river because it flows from south to north. Hindu’s believe if your body is burned here that it breaks the cycle of rebirth and you get a straight ticket to nirvana. Body’s burning on the banks of this river is a tradition dating back over 3,000 years. Photo by @nadjajaber
