    ... ghats, hundreds of stray dogs, people begging and other tourists taking photos of this magical place. We met Sadhus here, Hindu men who devote their life to the religion, basically from what I gather, these men abstain from any kind of sexual relationship and make up for it by smoking copious amounts of drugs.
