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 lonely planet didn't fill us in on that one or advise a nose peg!
We then stopped at one of two 'burning ghats'. This is ...

... It was this stillness that brought us back to the burning ghats that night. This time informed and unwavering we sat quietly and watched the flames dance in the wind and burn bright against the night sky. I am not sure if it was a result of the vantage point or the darkness of the night, but the bodies seemed to burn brighter and bigger.
