      ... new white cloth to do this. Family and friends each buy some firewood from the sellers, and the more wood burned gives a more complete burn of the corpse. A few of the bones don't burn so when the fire is out those bones and the ashes are all put into the river. A bit sobering to watch, and because the family are grieving everyone is asked not to take photos.

      At 18:00 we went to a Bhramin prayer ceremony (Puja) that they have each night ...

While there is less water, Vanessa and I agree that seeing India in the cooler months has probably reduced ...

Ok, we're not really dodging, after a week I feel comfortable that I'm not going to die when I walk into the traffic, the key is walk slowly, at ...

      ... of lassi you wanted. I settled for banana and apple - delish! Varansi is the spiritualist capital of India, the city of Shiva and near to where Buddha delivered his first sermon following his enlightenment.
