The Asiatics, Fred Prokosch, part 3

A travel blog entry by thesunroseclear on Jul 26, 2014

... we stopped, we glimpsed behind the brushes [sic] a dead man lying among the stalks. At Allahabad there were thousands of fakirs, feet bleeding, stomachs bloated, loins shriveled; dust on their lips, ashes and cow dung in their hair, their sinister secret odors assailing one from afar. They looked happy enough. They were carrying boxes upon their heads and were walking silently side by side, graceful as panthers, smelling vaguely of cinnamon. ...

... shade, and women cluster around one another. If one person is working you will have five other just watching. The pace of life is slow and not hurried. The ancient Kings and Queens of Egypt built their temples and tombs along the banks of the Nile. Many of these ruins were flooded and had to be moved onto higher ground.

... people! So we went back to a Nubian house which we entered and went upstairs to meet Ramzy. We sat down and had a chat for a minute, when all of a sudden Ramzy scared the **** out of Darren by throwing a crocodile onto him! It was a tiny little thing, which his mouth tied shut, and he was SO CUTE! I called him Chomper, and had a cuddle and got some photos. I wonder if I could get a crocodile through customs...
