this city is trippy…
– burning bodies upstream from bathing sadhus,
– people washing and brushing their teeth next to each other
– goats, cows, people, and motorbikes all roaming through streets narrow enough that you can touch both sides if you stretch your arms out
– wierd ‘babus’ walking around chanting and blessing you (then asking for money)
in the evening there was a festival for the Hindu goddess Saraswati – man it was nutty… first, there were only men and they were all stoned. float after float of the goddess stream down the streets until they get to the river where they light the float in flames and then send it into the water… crazy party with absolutely no women except for the ones carrying the heavy lights on their head in front of some of the floats…
