    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.

    ... No burning bodies or crazed naked men hurling themselves into the water, just a grubby river. Surprised by the city (not our first surprise in the area!) we headed back to the hotel and after a curry dinner (shock) we slept like the dead. After checking out of our hotel the next morning we relaxed in an air conditioned restaurant to wait for our overnight train. We ordered chips and were overwhelmed with excitement ...

There was a stage up front, holding the attention of most of the male guests thanks to a belly dancer, and in the rear of the tent there were huge tables setup with incredible amounts of food to feed all of the guests. After being introduced to dozens of other people (everyone ...

    ... new white cloth to do this. Family and friends each buy some firewood from the sellers, and the more wood burned gives a more complete burn of the corpse. A few of the bones don't burn so when the fire is out those bones and the ashes are all put into the river. A bit sobering to watch, and because the family are grieving everyone is asked not to take photos.

    At 18:00 we went to a Bhramin prayer ceremony (Puja) that they have each night ...

    ... if to compound our misery the 8 hour journey ended up taking almost 12 and it was ridiculously cold during the night. At one point I nearly turned to madness but abated this by trying to create tunes out of the snores reverberating around the carriage. It was like some strange rhythmic mantra as all the folk on the train seemed to snore as if harmonising.

    At around 11am we finally arrived into the station and got into a Tuk Tuk for a 20km drive to Varanasi. ...

    ... up , washing the soap off, discretely wrapping a towel around themselves, off with the grundy's, wash them, wrong them out then get dressed again. It's very interesting being a spectator of life in an Indian village. Then we walk up to the shop area and begin negotiations on some bags. Genelle would be proud of me, I bought 6 bags in 1 sitting and negotiated hard and ended up pretty happy. One was for me, a cheapo "man bag" for carting a few things around with me other than ...
