Arrived at the Hotel in Varanasi at around 1 pm. Time for lunch and a quick nap 😴 and then left for a festival on the banks of the Ganges. Took a bus ride and then a 45-minute Tuk-tuk ride to the banks of the Ganges. The only rule of the road seems to be that “there are no rules” it is amazing to see bikes 🚲, mopeds 🏍 , and cars 🚗 coming towards and around you within touching distance. Just trusted our driver and everything was fine.
The ceremony that we watched was great. All the senses were activated. I meditated and watched and there was so much going on that it was almost sensory overload. Very spiritual event. Went back to the hotel for dinner.
