    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 …

    ... was much easier than I was expecting.

    MEGA BANG! We were still in
    in the alley and the noise frightened the life from us, both shrieking and me swearing! After the initial shock we all laughed our heads off because our reactions were so extreme. It was just a firework being set off in the street for the wedding, it was a chuffing big one.

    Two of the lads disappeared. I asked Namdan where they had gone and he showed me his little finger. That means number ...

    ... of sandalwood from Egypt and the Masala is not as good here as it was in Nepal so far.

    From the temple, we went back to the hotel for breakfast and then were picked up again at 10:45 to go to the Sarnath Stupa where Buddha said his first sermon. In the temple a Japanese artist painted the life of Siddhartha (Buddha) in the 20th century. It began with the dream that his mother had that predicted her pregnancy until his death.

    Outside the temple was a Bodhi ...

    ... with that. We head towards the CBD, only it's not like any other CBD I've seen before, Delhi Spice markets are a little bit similar. I end up getting a bit of a sweat up and the knee is holding up ok, we're dodging rickshaws, auto rickshaws (tuk tuk's), bikes, motor bikes, cars, people, salespeople doing their job. Ok, we're not really dodging, after a week I feel comfortable that I'm not going to die when I walk into the traffic, the key is walk slowly, at ...
