    ... willingly spent a lot of time here. There is no doubt that the biggest emotional shock that most people experience are the endless ceremonies of preparation and cremation of the bodies at the Burning Ghats by the river and this in itself is enough to provoke a very deep impression that each and everyone who witnesses it for the first time deals with in his/her own way.

    ... where we were. We found a hotel nearby though, and thankfully there was an American man in the lobby who let us borrow his iPad to use google maps. "Ooooh no, I wouldn't wanna be out there alone at this time of night either" he said. Thanks mate.

It is also popularly referred to as "Banares" which is what the British called it and the local religious call ...

    ... leading from temples down to the Ganges. There are several that are specifically designated as burning Ghats where bodies are cremated. The Ghat where we're meeting Patrick and Connie is where they do a big noisy Ganges religious thingy every night at 6:15. When we stroll up there several hundred people gathered before a large multi section stage of sorts at the river's edge. Varanasi is not really a tourist town, it's a pilgrim town. People come here specifically to pray. Steve's ...
