Woman bathing another woman in milk on the shore of the Indian Ocean, Durban, South Africa
African women bathing each other in milk standing in the shallow of the Indian Ocean along Durban's golden beaches is sometimes seen amongst the bathers. A ritual that lasts about ten minutes before they cleanse themselves in the waves, calling out a pray - thankful for being alive.
