INDIA . . Benares . . The modern name is Varanasi, the most fascinating city in India, for me.. This man washes clothes on a stone in the Ganges River. The famous Ghats are on the left with temples, residences, lodgings. I don't stay at the western hotels across town, but here in the old section. I find a place on a small houseboat near the center of activity, to lay my sleeping bag below deck. The feelings of spirituality and religion here overpower me.
