    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.

    Thanks to an incredibly helpful guy at the hotel we stayed at in Agra we managed to get a last minute train ticket to Varanasi, one of the worlds oldest cities, built along the banks of the holy Ganges. 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 …

    ... him to follow us playing it for an hour. We negotiated a price, and he joined us at the restaurant for dinner playing as we walked to the restaurant. A few of us were interested in seeing a Bollywood movie before completely ending our India experience, so we headed to a mall with a theatre. The last show started at 9:50. We made it barely though an hour of the three-hour movie, but were able to watch two song and dance numbers. It was time for bed. It was far too full of a ...

    ... dogs and cows need to be kept away. Death here is just another part of life, and it doesn't seem to come bundled with the same gravity that it does at home. The worst thing for me was the smell. The problem is, its not really a bad smell at all! My brain was thinking "human body on fire", but my tummy was thinking... well, I'm not going to tell you what my tummy was thinking. I don't want to think about it. I stayed in an excellent guesthouse right ...

    People, people everywhere! With over 1.3 billion people it's not surprising that you see so many people everywhere, whether on the city streets or in a remote rural village. The majority of people seem to be busy making a living no matter how small or modest. Like the traffic, at first it all seems to be crazily chaotic but on closer examination you can see that it all works. Just like hundreds of cars can negotiate a four-way intersection without a ...

    ... a good one. We are talking over 10 hours here. He's a smart kid from a middle caste (goldsmith) who seems to know his stuff and wishes to be a successful business man one day. He also fancies himself a philosopher, as he loves to politely offer the flip side of any point made. At this point we can't tell you what direction or where exactly we walked, but we seemed to go just about everywhere. The alleys in the Old City can be a maze for the unfamiliar. Lalit shows us some ...
