    Fantastic shot. Love the expression on this guys face. About the soap. I assume this is the same river from yesterday that was full of livestock :)

    Harry: yes, I am afraid so :-)

The story behind "Laundry service in Agra, part 3: scrubbing"

Part 3 of the Agra Laundry service. This old man is scrubbing the clothes clean on a flat stone. I could not see anybody using any soap, though I assume it must bee needed to get the dust out…

Meanwhile the local children (and the local buffalos) are swimming in the same river.
