    ... cows, dogs and goats all **** in the lanes too, as do the all men. The men also spit in the lane. Basically the lane actually is an open sewer and I remember how I hated that side of them last time. A quick right turn and poof - a beautiful view of the river, ghats and opposite bank awaits.

    We stayed at the same B&B I stayed at last time. Accommodation on the ghats is expensive and standards low, the standards had sadly dropped this time. Don't get me wrong, there ...

    ... weirdest things we have been a part of on our trip. We even had the chance to see a family carry down a body (covered in silk and flowers so we didn’t actually see anything) and dip the corpse in the water before taking it up the steps to one of the burning fires for cremation.

    ... I think was a bit surprised I was content with going into a "whatever it was" and sat down and ate along side them at an "improper" restaurant while the others stayed on the bus. I would never be able to do this otherwise as a lone female traveller so I wanted to do all I could with a bodyguard. The meal was in my top three of entire trip! Then Naveen pulls out a rolled cigarette looking thing and he's like "well you've had roadside indian meal, do you want to try this? , ...
