Our small double room with bathroom. Shower with hot and cold water. Fan, cost 500 inr per night (our nabo had a bigger room but not so much daylight for 450inr).
They only have 4 rooms. One ac for 1000 inr. The fan room we have in the front and the ac room would be the best once to pick .
Right on assi ghat. Good pizza close by , and open hand cafe up the street with good food and shopping.

Varanasi, the city of the holy Ganges. A sacred Hindu city full of anything you can imagine. Cobblestone and dirt streets weave around ...
... me a hand massage. Initially I was quite wary as my hand was turned so quickly that my initial instinct was to return the training of the World Wrestling scriptures and lay the Smackdown on his candy ass. I believed the fellow was intent on breaking my wrist but instead he done something worse. He proceeded to squeeze it incredibly hard in different and normally unexplored areas. There was a moment when I believed I was the victim of some strange local custom but then ...
