... I had a half torn ten rupee note in may pocket, so as an old lady came toward me begging i placed it in the palm of her hand and she smiled. But no leas than five minutes she trotts back to me trying to give it back to me, it just turned into an uncomfortable stare at us intil she moved on, I guess beggers can be choosers sometimes. With that the train pulled in and we hopped abord and grabbed are seats. Are first real sleeper train journey in India seemed to ...
... of rung true yet it still has not failed to surprise me, I expected to see naked people but I didn't expect To see a guy crouched down in corner facing outwards masterbating.

... over what I had intended to offer anyway but not wanting to ask if they did twigs I said to Lesley to give him 500, the guy then said this was nothing and people give 50 dollars.

... as they are still pure souls, pregnant woman were carrying a pure soul so don't need it, holy men don't either as they're already pure, and I'm not sure about why the other two don't. So the man we saw floating down the Ganges was either a holy man, had leprosy, or had been bitten! Free lunch we moored up and left the boats. We got a minibus to Varanasi.

TravelPod Member ReviewsChaitanya Guest House Varanasi
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.
