Varanasi as the sun rises is a mystical place, and we had been told that there is no better way to take in the morning sights then by boat.

Meeting our boatman at the hotel before the sun rose, we exited the guesthouse to the sounds of Hindu devotionals being chanted. As we walked to our boat, we passed several Sahdus, Hindu Holy Men, in …

Holy ****…Seriously: Holy ****, we arrived in Varanasi, and there is cow **** everywhere!

Our initial itinerary had us taking an early flight from Jaipur, connecting in Delhi with a minimal layover, then directly to Varanasi, arriving a little before noon. With the troubles we've been having with Kingfisher airlines, it instead …

Today we leave for Agra on the Overnight train from Varanasi Junction, our first job was breakfast omelette and toast for me, just toast for Nay, next was the minor detail of paying the bill.

We were up at 8am, had a shower, did the last of the packing, then headed into Thamel to the Internet cafe, 30 rupees for an hour which was less than 20 pence. We sent text messages to Mum & Dad, Nick, David, Alex and Joe telling them we were thinking of them. Nay sent one to Annie, still no news from …

I woke up at 7am the sun was streaming through the shutters, Nay was still fast asleep, I opened the French doors to the balcony, the rest of Varanasi was wide awake, people were bathing, washing and taking boat rides up and down the Ganges, I sat and watched the world go by for half an hour. Nay woke up at 7.30am, we decided to go to the Lotus for …

    Just a note - If you are staying ON the Ganges, you are NOT going to find luxury. After arriving in Varanasi, our taxi ride to the hotel had us on edge, as this was the craziest traffic we had been in since arriving in India. Our driver tried to drop us off along a random street - we had no idea where we were, so we thought we were in the wrong place and being scammed. Finally, 2 men arrived and picked up our suitcases, and we followed them down a bunch of back-alleys with motorcycles squeezing by, cows blocking the way, while trying to avoid stepping in the incredible amount of "cow patties"! Finally, we arrived at the hotel, and the owner greeted us, said we needed to rest and relax in our room, and then we could come down and check in and talk to him. We thought that was a bit odd, but we went with it. The owner was really nice, the staff was very friendly. We were on the top floor, so we had a view (mostly of hippies doing yoga on the rooftops of the other buildings, but we could also see the river). Their advice was to make sure not to have any food sitting out, because the monkeys will try to get in your room! Sleep under your mosquito net, and you'll be okay! There aren't televisions, the wi-fi is spotty, so bring something to entertain yourself while you are in your room.
