    ... drivers - we had been told that Varanasi was one of the worst places for the pushy tuk tuk man, and we got what we expected. Unfortunately, we needed a tuk tuk to get to our hotel by the water, as it was too far too walk and no public transport links existed. Finally we found a fair one, and we headed to our guest house.
