@pedromcbride @davidcmorton and I hit the physical end of our #GangaS2S journey at Ganga Sagar, where the sacred #Ganges River meets the Bay of Bengal. It was 6 weeks and 1500+ miles of challenge, adventure, and learning. But, much of the story is just beginning; we have a film in the works and stories to write and share. Stay tuned for more, and as always huge thanks to our sponsors and partners: @microsoftcorporation #Surface @eddiebauer @natgeo #Ambuja @vapur #clifbar #Julbo #deLorme #beyondcoastal @blackdiamond #voltaic

Relaxing, #Calcutta style. One of the few places you can still find hand-rickshaws, our #GangaS2S expedition down the #Ganges took us to this amazing city on the Bay of Bengal via the #Hooghly River. An amazing city full of colonial charm, immense hustle and bustle, and places to catch a nap, too. @pedromcbride @davidcmorton @eddiebauer @microsoftcorporation #Surface.

Not even a #cyclone can stop a good party! In #Patna, Bihar, @davidcmorton @pedromcbride @ashleymosher and I ran into the remains of cyclone #Phailin dumping rain throughout the city. But it didn’t dampen the spirits of #Durga Puja celebrations: people donned plastic sheets, got wet, and kept on celebrating. @microsoftcorporation #surface @eddiebauer @natgeo and #Ambuja made #GangaS2S possible…thank you!

Life just happens everywhere in India. There’s little breakdown between personal and public space, and a shop can be set up anywhere there’s work to be done. Here in #Calcutta (#Kolkata), a man sharpens knives in a courtyard using a bicycle-powered sharpener. #GangaS2S @davidcmorton @pedromcbride @eddiebauer @microsoftcorporation #Surface @natgeo.

In #Varanasi, the sacred city…

In #Varanasi, the sacred city along the #Ganges, you’d think #Halloween was an everyday affair. In this place, the elderly and sick come to die on the banks of the sacred river; cremations with massive funeral pyres burn around the clock; and lavishly decorated #Shaivite sadhus like this man – devotees of Lord #Shiva, the God of Destruction in the Hindu trinity – walk the streets, bodies often smeared with human ash and clad in little more than a loin cloth. But, creepy and Halloween-y it is not: Varanasi, a city where many come to die, is a place of intense beauty, love, passion, and light radiating from without and within. Thanks @eddiebauer @microsoftcorporation #Surface @natgeo & #Ambuja from #GangaS2S! @pedromcbride @davidcmorton

The #tanneries of Kanpur are notorious for contributing massive pollution to the #Ganges River – things like #chromium, lime, and more going untreated into the river. But, they also provide much needed employment for tens of thousands of people. And, life goes on…here young boys from a local #madrasa play on a pile of chemical coated leather scraps. Thanks to @eddiebauer #surface and @natgeo for making #GangaS2S possible! @davidcmorton @pedromcbride

#Water is a precious commodity,…

#Water is a precious commodity, essential for all life. It is revered here in India, and while water shortages and lack of safe water leave millions without enough to drink, there is massive wastage, too. Here in #Vrindavan, on banks of the #Yamuna, a pipe spews safe #watee onto the ground. Unofficial estimates say 30-40% of India’s piped water is lost due to leakage and waste. #GangaS2S @eddiebauer #surface #watermatters @davidcmorton @pedromcbride

One of the most important…

One of the most important tributaries to the #Ganges, the #Yamuna starts at #Yamnotri in the high Himalaya; its waters bring life to the foothills in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. Its makes a difficult run through the mega-metropolis of New #Delhi where most of the city’s raw human waste and industrial effluvia go straight into the river, turning it into an effectively dead river. It continues to flow through #Agra, past the iconic Taj Mahal, and eventually joins the Ganges at #Prayag, or #Allahabad. Here, @davidcmorton and @pedromcbride conduct a water ecology test near the Taj in a river of hot, black, fetid soup. #GangaS2S #surface @eddiebauer #dontswiminyamuna
