An unusual spot, close to Sydney : the SS Aurfield Shipwreck. Located in Homebush Bay (western suburbs of Sydney). This old 102 years old ship has become a floating forest, the spectacle is beautiful. #shipwreck#sydney#visitsydney#seeaustralia

The Burning Body Ceremony
Kailash, who introduced himself also as a burning man, told me that his family runs two different places by the river where the burning body ceremonies occur.
In the place where we were, there were three different spots for cremation: one for rich people (on a round cemented platform); one for people of average income (on the sand); and another for poor people (on an elevated cemented platform), all of them located in front of the river.
He also told me that the place is open 24h, because India is such a hot country and bodies can decompose very quickly in the heat, so the family has to bring the body to be cremated no later than five to seven hours after death.
Indian people are very religious and they believe that as soon as they do the ceremony, the soul of that body goes to nirvana.
The Ganges (Gaïgà) is the longest river in India and flows through the Middle Land, that part of India where the Buddha lived. The river's great size and beauty, and its ability to both nourish crops and to sweep away villages when in flood, meant that it was looked upon with a mixture of reverence and awe. •
