      ... bit of life's philosophy of the people.So different from ours, very much personal accountability, not so much on actions but on the intent, and a very strong belief in karma. Evening back on river for Aarti Ceremony, place teeming with humanity!!. So today is Friday and starting to get organized for the long trek home, not allowed to leave hotel precinct as a holy day and too dangerous to go out.

      ... and we were really grateful for him. He showed us many hidden sights and taught us a lot about Buddha and his life.
