Alexandra’s Amazing Journey
Wow...if you haven't visited my sister's website it is high time. I have been traveling for the last few weeks and had limited internet access. When I got home last night I logged on to see some pretty fantastic videos and great blogs. From Botswana to India and beyond (currently she is in Jerusalem) my sister's expeditions are pretty fantastic. I think my favorite video is Kanpur: Ganges Under Threat http://www.alexandracousteau.com/videos, I have never been to India before but am familiar with the Ganges River and how important it is to the culture of the Hindu people. When you think in Kanpur that 20 million litres or just over 5 million gallons of tannery waste as well as human waste get dumped into the river each day!!
When one thinks of the pollution and devastation that a river many people call the 'Mother Ganges' is suffering from; it is a poignant reminder of the link between human culture and the environment.
These are important stories and I urge you all to watch them.
