One day, back in Sep/Oct we were hanging out with our friends by the river (in Karnataka). This day served as our "going away party" after working at Ashraya Mission for the past several weeks. We ate a delicious meal of Chicken 65 cooked to perfection on a makeshift stove by our friend Shunkar. After lunch we basked on the river bank, nursing our full bellies. We took a dip in the river with some buffalo then dried off by the heat of the Indian sun. While we were sun-bathing this friendly woman crossed the river near us. My friend Mithun picked up my camera and snapped these beautiful photos of her. Just look at her bright smile!
