Perfect. What can I possibly go wrong with that? So, there’s your plug socket and there’s your Indian plug socket adapter. Take my picture.Good morning cow.

The Ganga, the river Ganges. The holiest river in India in the oldest city in India, of Varanasi. I took a tuktuk through the traffic and the horns down to the river.

Down to the ghats. The ghats are what you can see here, the steps. These steps, that’s the ghats and they’re all along the front, and it is meant to represent steps down from life into the afterlife or nirvana, because they believe that if you die here and Varanasi and you’re cremated and your bones, the ashes, are put into the river Ganges, or the Ganga they call it then you will go straight to Nirvana, so it makes a strange culture because the city here is full of old people, dying people, sick people, poor people, who want to die as close to the Ganges as possible so they can get their shot at Nirvana.

It’s in the evening when that this really comes to life but to give you an idea up to five hundred people a day are cremated along this section of the Ganga and their bones not all their buttons I learnt usually just the hipbone the ash of the hip bone is scattered in the Ganga and again in the in the Ganges and that then allows that person to go straight to Nirvana That’s the way to spend a hot, any day, afternoon. Head massage. Please, here, here, here, here.
