        Day 12 - Travel and Traffic
        Two short flights from Amritsar, with a short stop in Delhi, brings us to Varanasi. The flights were as you expect from most flights other than they were pretty much on time. A little warmer when we landed, at 32 degrees, made it pleasant to wander unescorted, dodging airside traffic, across the tarmac, to the …

        The day was spent in Varanasi with a professional photographer. His task was to not only find subjects to photograph but to also educate me on the best ways to use my camera, a Nikon D7100. I have uploaded some of my better pics.

        One thing I wasn’t permitted to photograph was the cremation grounds on the …

        This morning, I took a flight from Delhi to Varanasi and oh dear, this is where it really gets interesting. Varanasi is not only the cherry on top, it’s the whipped cream, hot fudge, sprinkles and anything else you can throw on top. What an exhilarating show!
