The seriousness of Allahabad and Varanas

Tagging along with Bill for his work trip to Allahabad was a huge cultural experience for me. I did not realize how much the city would impact me with its people literally living on the streets, naked children roaming around and trash spread along the streets and sidewalks.

LOTS of bicycle rickshaws EVERYWHERE 

This is a picture I took steps away from our hotel entrance, extremely poor people living alongside the road with barely a trap for their roof and sleeping on the dirt with bugs everywhere. 

Ganges River 

Pilgrims gathered to worship Shiva 
We saw hundreds of Pilgrims walking barefoot along the highway and streets

Buffalos bathing in the Ganges 
So many animals just hanging out
