“Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have traveled.”
— The Quran
This photo was taken on the banks of the Ganges River, just outside the holy city of Varanasi. We had camped on the sand for the night, but the nearby monsoons made the air thick and humid and impossible to get a good night’s sleep. When the sun rose at 5 am, so did we, which is when I caught a glimpse of this small fisherman’s boat plying the gray Ganges waters.
