And like Leo said, adventures I did have!
Ariana and I spent three days in Delhi, one in Agra, and three in Varanasi. During this time, I happened to rip my pants five times, spend 15 hours on the lowest train class sweating my butt off, meet more amazing people/fellow travelers, and see another Ganga Aarti (my favorite)! It was the most beautiful week of exploration.
I can officially say I’ve been to three Ganga Aartis… three more than most people (even Indians!) get to see in their lifetimes.
We met some amazing people in Varanasi. Some of them were new to India, some had been here five times before, all were a ton of fun and I am so grateful to have met them.
And, of course, you can’t go to Indian without getting lost in the streets.
Ariana and I spent some time exploring the shores of Varanasi… Almost fainted from the heat, but we got to see some incredible views.
I asked a street vendor to teach me to make chai so I wouldn’t have to miss it at home. I guess I was pretty happy about it!
Got to see a World Wonder!
And my favorite activity… visiting temples.
