Finally in Varanasi

Lucknow, India

The train journey was nowhere near as comfortable as the previous one as we were in ‘Sleeper Class’ which is lower than third class!

It was freezing cold and no one would give us any blankets to use so we used our thin travel towels and shivered to sleep.

But then after a restless sleep we finally made it to Varanasi. It wasn’t at all what we had expected. We knew that it was a big city so prepared ourselves as best as we could, but to be honest it was a right hole.

After taking a rick-shaw and a very long walk we gladly found our hotel, had something to eat and fall fast asleep even though it was only 3pm in the afternoon.

When we had woken up we discovered that a monkey had been into our room through our windows and stolen all our cigarettes as well as a candle! Then not much later we saw a tiny mouse run across our room, shortly followed by a huge rat! Our room to be honest fits right into Varanasi; just take a look at the photos! There are also tons of mosquitoes which have even bitten me a few times on my face and loads of lizards which we don’t mind as much and even a cow in the front room!

But regardless of all that we have an amazing view and stayed in watching films in the evening on our laptop.
