    ... 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. Elvis guest house (chosen for the name of my birthday partner Mr. Presley!) was amongst little winding ...

    ... they produced, we became customers and secured a few items that would be lovely and unique souvenirs of our time in this holy city. On our way out we found our guide Pradeep sitting in a room, talking with a group of people who seemed to be having a great time. When we got to the car he turned around in his front seat and asked us a very interesting question. He wanted to know if we would like to see what a real Indian wedding was like, since there was one ...

    Another nice Indian breakfast and we met up with our new guide, Sudeep, a really nice young guy who spoke English quite well.

He took us along the ghats (wide stone steps descending down to the Ganges) and gave us great info along the way but no pressure buy anything. Up ...

    ... last straw and we decided to return to the original waiting room away from these disease ridden creatures.
    The minutes ticked by slowly and the cold winds grew stronger. I was already growing fed up of the journey to Varanasi and I had yet to get on the train. Every so often we were hassled by fellows in red shirts who obviously worked at the station but tried to trick us into paying them money for help getting on the train. It is a sad fact of life in India that ...

    ... s the scene that I've seen in all the travel shows and documentaries. We walk down the river, dodging cow ****, dog ****, human detritus, rubbish, and it's amazing that the cleanliness of the river is so much worse than further upstream where we were on the boats. We have quick look at the market area, then onto the boat to watch the Hindu ceremony on the main ghat from the water. Then we go out to the middle of the river where we all drop ...
