Our stay in Varanasi was almost too spectacular to put into words. In addition to being a cultural center of North India, this is a very sacred site, and we feel so privileged we got to witness the rituals taking place there.
We’ve now moved on from Varanasi to Bihar. The river changes its feel every day, dressed with white sand beaches, babul forests or tiny hillocks adorned with forts from lost civilizations. Today we have a blanketed Ganga, as if cuddling under the warm embrace of fog.
