Varanasi is the Door of Heaven
You don't need sex, all you need is to pray. Or so says my new friend Tony who explains here why Varanasi, India is the door of heaven.

What a stunning excerpt this is of life view in India! The belief in the Ganges cleansing so contrasts with our own horror of human contact and things "unclean". Your videos are delightful and such concise comments on culture. Great site!
I'm really thrilled to see that you have included India into your travelogoue.
Wow!! its nice to see the optimist in you...
Good to see that you are also filming your travels. i do that too but I haven't travelled a lot.
Are you travelling to the southern peninsula or are you gonna restrict to the northern part of the country.
Hope you have nice time at Agra. I had a tough time to get the Taj filmed due to the restrictions on the usage of Video Camera. Its pure politics to sustain the buisness interests of the still photographers lingering there.
Good luck on your trip.
Did you take the opportunity to bathe in the Ganges? See any floating poo?
i have visited india twice and could go back again. but the truly best kept secret of the world is myamar. we traveled there extensively and returned agin for a few special days. no photos can do justice to the temples and reclining budhas etc etc etc. the people r wonderful and it is a MUST on any travelers list. thank you for your website.
MJ - no, I didn't bathe in the Ganges. I let the hype scare me. Now I wish I had. (Next time...)
this is so right on. it really sums the whole thing up in a way we westeners just can't
This is what we, common mortals, will never be able to do: to travel freely, to see wonders not available at the local mall, to see the true spirit of communion with the land you´re stepping on.
I envy you and everyone free enough to lose the anchor and take a breath of the air from such extraordinary places. Please continue, it´s for our own good!
