... picked us up and dropped us at the hotel. I wasn't sure what to expect, as I was not able to get any of the major chains, which made me nervous. We ended up at the Gateway, which is owned by the Taj hotels, so figured that would be ok. In fact it was just fine, albeit a bit old and worn, but clean and had good AC. Internet was spotty, but it worked most of the time!

We had several hours to relax before our guide, DJ met us at 530 to ...

with the promise of meeting next morning again and was dropping mellow lights
on the Ghats and ...

... my expectations were higher for this visit... The problem is I expected a little town boarding the river Ganges and in the end, here were so many people in a very polluted and congested megalopolis which in my eyes ruined the experience... After a late breakfast, we decided to head to the ghettos of Varanasi and discover how they make the saris and process the silk which is supposedly the best place in India for it ! It was extremely interesting and eye opening as well. ...

... but feels a bit more like a performance rather than the religious ritual it's meant to be, partly because the camera wielding tourists (of which I was clearly one) outnumber the devotees, partly because the Brahmins doing it look proper bored. Though to be fair, if I had to repeat the same movements several times with different objects every single night whilst hundreds of people crowded the river I was trying to worship, I'd be pretty over it ...
