Kids take a swim in the Ganges, Varanasi, India (c) 2011 Andy Parkinson
Ya know, I have very few water treatment plants here in Central America.
Could be why I stay out of the rivers and pools I visit.
Looks like fun but water can have some nasty stuff in it.

Thank you John. Yes, I didn’t mention it (it kinda ruins the romance of the shot) but those who know India and particularly Varanasi will know that the ghats – the concrete steps leading into the river – are used for cremation – Varanasi is a very auspicious place to pass, be cremated and be swept away into the Ganges, less auspicious a place for a swim though if you ask me…
Not sure if I’d be up for that mate, not that it looks dirty or anything, just that those little tykes look ready to drown someone!
