    ... I stop as if looking at something and turn around, I did this twice and he was caught out a bit and had to kill time doing something or other. I did not like the look of him so I darted along a dark alley, this in hindsight might not have been a good move, but I knew the dark alley ended up at the river and there are always hundreds of people there so I made a bee-line. Anyway he did not follow and all was good, but as I walked along here there was ...

    ... After doing a bunch of walking we headed back to the hostel. There we napped and went to Chai time. Most hostels have Chai time where at 4:00pm they serve chai and biscuits for the residents and everyone socializes. I had been to a bunch in the other hostels and this was no different.

Bags, sandals, anything less than puppy height off the floor ended up covered in tiny teeth marks. Or dog ****. Whatever.

    ... for our tour of Varanasi,the holiest site for the Hindus. We took a mad rickshaw cavalcade through the bazaars and old streets of the town.bicycles and tuktuks come at you from all sides often going the wrong way down a one way street honking incessantly as they go and we all trying to avoid the cows that wander freely about.
