Travel Blogs from Varanasi

It looks so lovely in the pictures

A travel blog entry by valetroy


Up at 5am and on the way to the ghats by 5.30. Today's guide was very aloof. Saw the sun rise over the Ganges and took loads of photos, which I hope look picturesque but just seemed squalid.

... the musical family. The old guy is celebrating his 50th anniversary but he stuffed up his part of the ritual.

Alcohol is prohibited but you can buy it in some nasty holes. The government runs a bhang shop where I believe you can also buy opium. He had a model of Shiva (chief god) penis made of hash.
