Checking In From the Kumbh Mela

The day before yesterday we spent the day at the Kumbh Mela, the primary destination in our visit to India. Very few westerners but we were made very welcome. Bathed in the Ganges and received many, many blessings from sadhus and gurus. Amazing experience.
If anyone is interested you could check our blog at:

indiabhutannepal.blogspot.com

Doing so much that we could not do until we retired

Blessings to all

I've only experienced the Mela festival and Varansai through Endo's Deep River but would love to be there myself. Enjoy! A trip of a lifetime. . .

We're fine, went there a few days before the biggest crowd, only 1.5 to 4 million on our day, kind of slow by the 20+million on the busiest day. In Nepal now, kinder, gentler kind of India.
