Reaching Our Last Camp
It’s crazy to think how quickly time flies – day 49 on the river puts us at our last camp of the journey. We were able to have a little fun with henna thanks to our wonderful artist Krushnaa! Henna is a paste made out of crushed leaves and the twigs of a henna plant. When the paste is applied to the skin, it leaves a stain and usually lasts for 7-14 days.
We had a visitor surprise us – a large checkered keel snake! It was huge and crossed the river towards us. It made a few people in the group uneasy, but it was probably more afraid of us than anything.
We have packed up camp in Nababwip and are heading towards Kalyani.Tomorrow we will touch the waters of the Bay of Bengal! The Ganges river connects with the Bay of Bengal at the northern tip.
