Hindus consider the waters of the Ganga to be both pure and purifying. Nothing reclaims order from disorder more than the waters of the Ganga. Moving water, as in a river, is considered purifying in Hindu culture because it is thought to both absorb impurities and take them away. The swiftly moving Ganga, especially in its upper reaches, where a bather has to grasp an anchored chain in order to not be carried away, is considered especially purifying. What the Ganga removes, however, is not necessarily physical dirt, but symbolic dirt; it wipes away the sins of the bather, not just of the present, but of a lifetime.

A popular paean to the Ganga is the Ganga Lahiri composed by a seventeenth century poet Jagannatha who, legend has it, was turned out of his Hindu Brahmin caste for carrying on an affair with a Muslim woman. Having attempted futilely to be rehabilitated within the Hindu fold, the poet finally appeals to Ganga, the hope of the hopeless, and the comforter of last resort. Along with his beloved, Jagannatha sits at the top of the flight of steps leading to the water at the famous Panchganga Ghat in Varanasi. As he recites each verse of the poem, the water of the Ganga rises up one step, until in the end it envelops the lovers and carry them away. "I come to you as a child to his mother," begins the Ganga Lahiri.

I come as an orphan to you, moist with love.
I come without refuge to you, giver of sacred rest.
I come a fallen man to you, uplifter of all.
I come undone by disease to you, the perfect physician.
I come, my heart dry with thirst, to you, ocean of sweet wine.
Do with me whatever you will. (Wikipedia)

La verdad es que desde bien pequeño tuve una gran admiración por la observación del cielo durante la noche, solía tumbarme en cualquier sitio y mirar durante minutos y minutos (por no decir horas!) hasta que el sueño o el frío me vencía, lo que pasará antes! Supongo que tiene que ver con el placer de evadir la mente de todo y concentrarte en este grandioso espectáculo que son las estrellas! Espero que os guste!
Saludos!

The Nam Song River is a small river in Laos that flows through the town of Vang Vieng. The most notable feature of the area is the karst hill landscape surrounding the town.
La ciudad de Vang Vieng está dividida en dos por el río Nam Song. El Nam Song no es un río tan grande como el Mekong pero tiene un encanto increíble y posee unos alrededores realmente únicos, rodeados por un paisaje de mesetas de piedras calizas.
