Entering India

A travel blog entry by keeleymclaren

I was up, in a taxi and at the bus station by 6.30am. I showed my ticket to someone and he couldn't be more helpful, walking me to the right bus and finding the conductor for me to put my bag in the back. I had 20 mins before it left so sat and got a masala tea and stocked up with water. Once on the bus I was the only foreigner on there, it wasn't particularly full so I had a double seat to myself and was given a free water bottle and newspaper in English! The first page I read was about ...

Observing a Hindi Funeral in India's Oldest City

April 9-13

Our last stop in India, Varanasi, epitomized the disorienting chaos and rich traditions we have experienced for the last 10 weeks. It would have been very hard to pick a better end point for our trip in India.

Varanasi, along the banks of the sacred river Ganges, is one of the oldest continually inhabited city in the world. It is the spiritual capital of India and archeological evidence ...

Varanasi and the Ganges

... and still others washing away their sins, it is, after all, a multi-purpose river!

Arriving at the cremation Ghat was a real shocker for us. Hindu's from all over India choose this as their final destination, and there is a process that leads up to the actual cremation. First, the cloth shrouded body arrives in Varanasi, how, we don't know, but once here, it is draped in colorful cloths, placed on a bamboo stretcher and paraded through the ...
