Varanasi - Day 1

Varanasi is quite the city. We are staying in the old part of town. It truely is a three dimentional maze that makes you belive you are in some escher drawing. Extremly colorful, noisy and its hard to navigate after dark.  We checked in to a hotel right next to the ganges. Its has a really beautiful view of the river bank, its dirt cheap and the rooms have huge windows that open out towards the river. We trekked the city to the tallest building on the banks and we were rewarded with a great view over the city. Tomorrow we are getting up at 04:30 to catch the sunrise in a small boat on the ganges, I hope I can get myself out of bed.
