... They tie stones to the body and drop them in the middle of the river. We spent quite a few hours just watching the cremation sites and the sunset over the river. We then got dinner and headed home. We spent some time chatting with our hostel mates. There was this young couple who had quit there corporate job to start a tourism business in Varanasi.
