... so much as a brush of the teeth or a wash of the face and I was in a tuc-tuc within 5 minutes of the call. Despite our set back we managed to get down in time to watch the sunrise cleansing rituals which take place on the banks of the Ganga river at the spot where Lord Rama (he is best mates with Lord Shiva, but of course you knew that, they have been tight for centuries now) took his dip, when he was released from captivity.

I'd like to think we're both fairly calm chappy's, and we've been in these situations dozens of times, but this was too far.

... each step you take and with each minute that passes by. Our first night after wandering through the narrow streets Terry and I decided to hire a boat to row us down the river to experience the nightly prayer ceremony from a distance while also being able to take part in the floating candle ceremony after sunset. Our little boat man quietly set off up river to the two main ghats to gain the best vantage point of both ceremonies. Both started at 6:30 and were ...
