It would have been very stressful if we had tried to come here and get around on our own.Janu can arrange tours anywhere in India, and he linked us with Kunal Rakshit of Experience Varanasi for this final portion of the journey (since we had to fly one hour from Delhi).Yukiro and I arranged our India trip with Janu Private Tours.It made the world of difference to travel with our own private guide, car, and driver: we were able to see multiple cities in a short time, and never worry about the logistics. Janu and his guides were always on hand to answer our questions expertly, and with a smile.
Now, we’ll join holy men at the banks of the Ganga, the famous river that flows throughout India.I hope you’ll keep an open mind as we dive into this aspect of Indian culture (don’t worry, there are no graphic photos of the bodies).If you’re anything like us, I’m sure you will find these ceremonies riveting.Our driver, Ravi, was an expert at navigating through the “free for all” streets.
We got off to walk through Godowlia Road, which is for pedestrians only and leads to the riverfront.
