Varanassi........Get us out of here??!!!!

It's fair to say that we didn't enjoy Varanassi that much.........but it could have just been because by this point the Indian heat was really getting to us & at the back of our mind we were looking forward to getting to cooler climates in Nepal. I don' think it helped that our room was pretty...

New Years Eve in Varanasi...

This evening we went for a walk once again along the Ganges River but this time at night to watch a celebration happening on the Main Ghat. Although we are still unsure what it was for, it was pretty nice. Then, in the evening we celebrated the New Year with...

Varanasi = very nasty?

So we jumped on a train to Varanasi, which is thought to be the holiest Hindu city. We woke up the next morning expecting to be just an hour away, but found that we were only about half way. The train had been delayed by 4 hours (though we had to try and ask other travelers this in very bad...
