I arrived at Haridwar (footsteps of the gods) on the River ganges at noon and took a dip along with thousands of hindu pilgrams and the water was the coldest i've felt since arriving in India. Headed a little further up to Rishikesh, the 'yoga capital' of the world and such a contrast to Delhi with it being cooler, more serene and about 12.8 million less people!
I found a nice quiet place to stay up on the western bank with a view of the great ganga from my verandah.
