After some days in Chitwan, we departed from Nepal. We got to look a rhino inside the wild, which become interesting. It's a nice neighborhood. It's first-rate to be returned in a tropical surroundings after per week-long stay in Annapurna.

After that, we traveled to Varanasi. What a domain, wow. It is famous for having "holy water," however in our opinion, that certainly means "absolutely shit water." Locals and pilgrims take a bathtub inside the water both in education for passing away or in memory of a loved one. The corpse is also burned, and the ashes are submerged in water. Witnessing a son cremate his father become an fascinating rite. I shall always don't forget seeing the burning of my very first corpse. It is quite terrible to peer these devout Hindus drink the most infected water in the international. The holy Ganges is used for almost the entirety: burning corpses, ashes, bathing, laundry, swimming, boating, fishing, cows, garbage disposal, drinking, and combing their teeth. It appears that Varanasi is essentially described as "hell" or a prevent on one's journey to Nirvana in Hinduism.

We visited the Taj Mahal in Agra after leaving Varanasi. Like Varanasi, Agra is shrouded in a polluted haze. The Taj changed into a absolutely hanging constructing! After leaving Nepal, we met up with some Van-based firefighters, who sincerely made our first week in India unforgettable.

After traveling through the night, we're presently within the western place of India. This area is definitely cool. The metropolis is extensively smaller and the air first-class is a ways higher. Pushkar is located round a small, holy lake that is available by Ghats . Numerous rooftop terraces are present. We needed to live a further day because the meal we had on the plane on the way to Varanasi left me feeling truly sick. I feel fairly excellent after eating two packets of Hydration Salts.

It have to be exciting as we head out on a bike to discover Pushkar.
