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.

Apparently there is lots of gold to find as bodies are burned with earrings, bracelets and other jewelry. My recounting of the cremation ceremony sounds detached and clinical, ...
... something, directions. Now, here's where I got me back. I sat in the bus pulled up my GPS and our destination. Casually, I walked outside feigning "I needed a stretch of the legs" "soooo are we lost? "No!" Says all three indian men emphatically. Now with caution so as not to immasculate them "Oh, I was just curious as to how long we had and where we were and and I have this little app type thing that is called Google maps and well it's not ...
... hawkering spiced snacks and toys - changed the notion of what an outdoor crematorium can be. This is after all, Varanasi - one of the oldest living cities in the world with the Ganges River as her spiritual artery. A carnival was completely unexpected. A friendly handshake with a local pilgrim can turn into a full blown hand and shoulder massage with the option of oil or no oil - free of charge but of course you will ...
