Crossing the River Part I
When we visited the Adivasi Academy, our drivers came in on a road that crossed a small, dry riverbed and dropped us off near the main buildings. Then the monsoons swept in and it rained all day. The founder of the academy, Ganesh Devi, told us late in the afternoon that the rains had made it impossible for our drivers to pick us up where they'd dropped us off, and that we'd have to ford a river of rain to get back to the other side and to our cars. We thought he was kidding. As this video and the two below it show, he wasn't. Click here to read my original blog entry on our visit to the Adivasi Academy.
