This is where most Indians want to be cremated, with their ashes being put into the Ganges. Well, there's not much that doesn't get put into the …

... drums carry one to an unimaginable height and the feeling is unbelievable. When I returned to my guest house in the evening and told the attendant about my sense of aw and wonder at how so many contradictions could co-inhabit in one place, he answered very casually that this was perfectly normal given the fact that the city of Varanasi was created by Shiva and that it does not rest on the surface of the earth but is actually suspended in ...

... told him of my facial muscle movements my mum taught me too do a and the guy asked if I did these facial movements holding dumbells! So funny �� Anyway... Back to it. Throughout India including Delhi it still amazes me how one side of the road is full of wealth and the other side with families living on the street in absolute poverty. New Delhi is relatively "new" when comparing to old Delhi but you wouldn't want to stay in either. ...

... are supposed to give to “right” boat man. We move away from the bakery door to hopefully draw less attention..we are finally asked for the receipt by a short fellow and we follow him to the ghats.

    Rooms very very average and hopelessly overpriced. The staff will hound you aggressively to book boat trips with them (we did, the boatman never turned up) and onward travel. Half the place is being gutted which doesn't help. Breakfast is a joke - don't bother. However great balcony view of the Burning Ghats (people watching at dusk is great) and close to the absolutely awesome Blue Lassi.
