    ... Aussie dollar shopped up a storm, buying pure silk hand made bedding and the like. I sat quietly saying Om Namaha Shivaya......just imagine what could happen for me next :):) As I lay in bed I smiled and sunk into my clean bedding, thanking God once again for all my blessings, big and small, and for India and its way of life and the many lessons I am receiving. It is almost time to wave good bye to India. I am unable to upload any pics at the hotel, so I will add pics in the next two days. ...

    ... way for the train we grabbed some quick lunch and mapped put our next two weeks travel so what had happened in Gorakpir wouldn't happen again.
    We were due off at 4.40 from platmorm 8 at the staition and got there with plenty of time to spare. While we waited we saw a young lad, no more that 7 or 8 with a cloth sack picking up rubbish on the tracks. Makes you wonder what life he has ahead of him if thats how his childhood is. It really is heart breaking ...

Terry and I made our way back to the hotel without many words, both still absorbing what we had seen and what we had learned. Still. This is a word I would use to describe us. Still in movement and mind. Still in a trace of the memory of the flames. Still in uncertainty to our emotions. Still in ...

    ... realize how eager they are for the 50 cents they might make from you (which could mean being able to buy fresh oranges for their family or supporting a child in school). We've never felt guilty for wanting to go on a walk before, but here you can see how your wanting to just get a bit of exercise can have an impact! Add to that the rigshaw chaos and the ever-present touts trying to get you to look at their store, to stay at their hotel, to go on a camel ride, etc. We ...

    Today was an extensive day! It all started with waking up at 5 am to witness the morning bath rituals Indians do in the ghats before going to the temple. We got on a boat and a man rowed passing the ghats where we saw Indians bathe themselves to be purified and start their day. We also stopped by the ghats where the cremation takes cremation…the same place where we ...
