I decided I wasn't going to waste my last morning in India sleeping, so I woke up early once again and went for another walk along the ghats as the sun came up.

While I was taking some photos down by the river shore a guy who was bathing looked at me and told me he remembered me. I just looked at him blankly and he asked me if I remembered him. I told him I did not and then continued taking photos. I mean, I honestly thought he was just another person trying to peddle me something. But then I heard him say "orange juice and banana muffin." I had already decided to zone him out so it took me a second to process what I had just heard but then it registered that that's what I had ordered at one of the cafes the previous day. And just as quickly as I realized who he was I realized how big of a jerk I must have seemed like, brushing him off like that. Anyways, we laughed and spoke for a little bit and he told me how he always comes down to bathe in the river that early so he can open his cafe. After a while we parted ways and I continued making my way up the ghats until it started getting hot. Then I started to head back to the hotel to pack and get ready to check out.
