    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 …

    So, we really had no choice ...

    ... I whipped out my wallet and showed him that I did not actually have 5000 rupees. I kept repeating no money until it went down to 3000 rupees before the final price of 1500 rupees. Taking out whatever notes I had, he helped himself to the bigger notes and returned the dirt change to me.

    Suddenly, the teen lost this fierce face and became all friendly, and polite. This caught me off guard and the immediate realisation that it was ...

    ... sleeping, if they're lucky enough to get to sleep!

    David decided to sleep with his pack (and the passports inside it) under his head which probably accounts for why he didn't get much sleep! I slept with my pack shoved up against the wall under my bunk and my handbag (including my wallet etc) hooked over my neck under the blanket, and my scarf wrapped around the pillow and over my face! I managed to get more sleep than David, despite one man opposite snoring all ...
