Adventure in India - Day 7 Veranasi

Our last half-day in Varanasi. We both fell in love with the city. This is what we imagined India to be like. It is spiritual yet gritty. Our guide took us to a temple on a university campus, which was interesting to see. There were art students selling their work near the temple – just like here! We went to a red temple, painted red in out and on top. Throughout the tour we had been taken to many shops to be shown a demo and then the hard sell. This time we were shown some exquisite weaving. It is still a cottage industry in India but they have some workers at the shop. Oh, yes, we did buy some textiles.
