When we were in Banaras, on the way to Calcutta, I remember Bruce Dunne and Andy Hurst — Andy’s the one who is the son of a doctor — and of being in a boat in the Ganges and bodies floating in the Ganges, dead bodies, like a significant number of them. And this is not a good place to drink the water. It’s really a mistake. I remember them going swimming and Bruce only went because Andy and Parker felt that this was like the thing to do, to bathe properly in this holy water, to be fully immersed. And I’m just thinking now, somebody should have said, “Don’t dunk yourself in the Ganges.” By today’s standards we wouldn’t be permitted to do anything.
