Day 9 - Agra to Varanasi

Well, the 12 hour train took 15 hours, almost as much time as it took me to get to India from DC. A group of us that were at the hotel in Agra are staying at the same hotel here in Varanasi. Upon arriving they didn't have a room for me (some guy was ill and had a late train) so they put me in the shop to rest. The guy that picked us up is India’s version of Borat, a real character. Signed up for an evening boat ride on the Ganges, a morning boat ride on the Ganges, a tour of the city temples and a trip to Sarnath (one of the four holy Buddha cities) where Siddhartha Gautama came to preach his message of Nirvana after he reached enlightenment.
