Varanasi

After arriving in Varanasi, with my father’s wallet lost and the bikes missing, I was not in the mood for anything. In fact my father and I were both down. We didn’t even bother to eat our dinner that night and just slept the whole day. On the second day we went to visit the Ghats(temples by the Ganga/Ganges river) to take some pictures and to just get a feel of the place. There is really nothing much to do in Varanasi. Most tourists  come here to visit temples, bathe/purify themselves in the Ganga or are here to learn about Indian arts and dances or learn how to play their musical instruments.

India has a 80% majority of Hindus and finding halal food can be quite a challenge especially in Varanasi. You have to ask around for Muslim restaurants, or usually just walk around until you find a Mosque and there will be Muslim eateries around. But in Varanasi the Muslim community is quite small so finding a proper restaurant can be quite a challenge. The only halal restaurants we could find were a few stalls that sell briyani rice, naan bread and only one stall which sold skewered meat(mutton), each stall has a very small dining area which can seat about 8 at any time, they eat and then go off no time for chit chat or relaxing. Life here in India is very hectic and fast paced.

    lovely travel pics my brown brother! keep it up mate. dont feel down about what happened. things that dont kill you… makes you stronger!

    ganges river is listed as top 5 most polluted river in the world but the hindus here use the river to purify themselves by washing and drinking. i find it amazing on what faith can do to human race.

    and im not surprised that you can still find small muslim community here even tho varanasi is the stronghold of the hindus. muslims are everywhere… i was shocked to meet muslim community deep inside tibet while i was cycling there.

    please write more to us together with pictures. take care and ride swift! god speed!!
