Fantastic Cruise but Disappointments at Ganges

Fantastic Cruise but Disappointments at Ganges Love the book! My wife and I have each probably read it front to back a couple of hundred times and we still can't put it down. Every time we are cruising and she asks me if I'd like to get a book to read I reply “Why do I need a book? I'd rather just read the Waggoner.” Anyway...last week we were up in Ganges (...
