... as our guide wanted to go for a pee! They were duly returned but with no real apology.That's India our guide said.Another 4 hours saw us arrive at Varanasi where after stating we were going to carry our own bags the porters immediately halved their fee.50 rupees being better than no rupees!

We have made new friends in our hotel which include an English woman for Yorkshire who is hilarious, a swiss/German couple we call the Germdish who are nice and the strangest Canadian guy. The Canadian guy seems to hate everything. He hates the hygiene in India, he's not interested in the religion, he thinks the body burning thing is beyond awful.
