    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.

    ... said the money doesn't actually go to these people). But it was true that the bodies didn't smell, which was interesting. I was glad to have seen such an important site for Hindus, but also so relieved to get out of the heat of the city, and to the airport to head back to Delhi (Bangkok tomorrow). India has been an extraordinary place to visit, but I think I'm ready for a little break from the scams, stares, and trash, and to relax a little in SE ...

    Finally, I must say that India is where America was on pollution in about 1970 or whenever it was that the Cuyahoga River caught on fire in Cleveland and Los Angeles air quality officially became nonexistent. In my tuk-tuk yesterday we passed over a river, or perhaps a stream, that ...

    ... me a quick orange dot on my forehead so that I would look the part as well and we climbed on board our trusty vessel for our trip up the river. Pradeep’s 18 year old son had joined us that morning so the four of us headed out on the calm water, joining the few other boats with tourists and locals alike who were enjoying the peaceful morning. All along the river there were groups of people as well as individuals taking part in the sacred ritual of bathing in ...

    A light breakfast of toast and chai at Sita restaurant then meet with Sudeep. We decided to buy new airline tickets with Jet Konnect, as they left 3 hours earlier in the day...... the fog has been so bad here that the 18:00 flights have been cancelled the last couple of days. We walked through all the back streets on the way to the Golden Temple. Non-Hindu's are not allowed in but Sudeep had a plan. If asked we were to say we believed in Siva and wanted permission to enter. We left our ...

    ... wasn't quite as enchanting, there were two separate security gates. One for women and one for men. I went through and was asked to open my bag for what would be a routine search. This however proved to be very far from routine. Two soldiers wearing assault rifles over their shoulders rummaged through my rucksack then proceeded to open my shaving bag, take out my iPad, my kindle, my paracetamol, some vitamins and a pack of playing cards. Incredibly they only took ...
