Siddhartha and the Wedding Crashers

Flew to Varanasi/Benares. Made it to the Taj Gateway. Unloaded then headed off to  the museum at Sarnath then to walk the grounds where Siddhartha delivered his first sermon as Buddha. To commemorate the occasion and mark the spot,  a really long time ago, someone erected this “what were they thinking”.IMG_0069We got back to the hotel just in time to do some touring of the wedding reception in the gardens before the guests showed up

When we walked out we came through this tunnel backwards so I guess we’re divorced now


Tomorrow I don’t have to worry about going back to sleep when I wake up at 4 f**king thirty as we are headed to the Ganges for the sunrise
