Varanasi October 4-7
If compare with Calcutta, i like here more coz it's more quiet and not too much traffic around the guesthouse. Before i went out, the hotel man gave me a hotel card in case of i lost the way and showed me how to come back, really nice (at that time, i think).
Walking alone since Ale was sick. First, i wanna find a pharmacy. You know, i bought a ring last time in Nepal .. i wore it for 4 months and nothing happened to me but since i came here, the weather in india or maybe it's not clean here ... something happened to my finger. It's burned. My skin was so .... ruin. I'm not sure if i can trust the pharmacy here but had to find one now! It was so ugly ..! People said .
Now chillin' chillin' ....
Konishiwa ... konishiwa ... along the way. Ahhhh, sorry i'm not Japanese ... :D Ok .. Namaste Namaste .. ahhh, sorry again I'm not Nepali :D I'm Thai :D:D:D Hahaha .. you know, no one says that i'm thai at all. Maybe they don't know Thailand? Maybe Thai people look alike many well known country?? Maybe .. no Thai comes here? Maybe .. Yeah, maybe my hair makes me look like Japanese. Maybe my face makes me look like Nepali .. Anyway, after i said "I come from THailand". Ahhh ... China!! No no no, Thailand not China (wondered how could be the same sound??) Then .
Hahaha .. Finally you knew! Thank you!
I took a rest at Chai shop. 2 Glasses drinking among Indian. Next to the chai shop was the bidi shop. I tried Bidi again. Bidi is like a cigarettes but smoke with a leave not a paper. And tried .. i forgot what is it ... Tobacco wrapped by a leave and put something which can make your mouth turns to be red by not smoking but chewing. Once i tried, two old men came to me and laughed and said ... Don't do it dear hahahaha .... (in Thailand has quite the same, only grandma-grandpa do it :)) After chewing, don't swallow it. Not a bad taste, really :) They take it instead of smoking cigarettes :D
Then Konishiwa .
5 minutes walked in the mysterious way ... then when we got out from that narrow ally, I saw an amazing thing!! Beautiful ganga! Wish i could show you the pictures. Was really nice indeed!! He took me walked along the right side of Ganga to a small market .. ahhh there i met many many indian women. Raj said today was a Women day. No work. :) Then we went to see a place that pregnant women come to wash themselves. The water was not clean but he said "this is clean enough".
It seemed to be good with a new friend if he didn't say something to make me feel uncomfortable. Yeah, he's flirting .. finally. Haha. I'm not that nice or beautiful but maybe it's the way he always did to tourist women???? Or i went with him so easily which made him feel that i was interested in him??? I dunno, but i didn't think like that!! So i told him that .
Ran fast to guesthouse to check how Ale is. His face is sooo pale haha ... Kebab kebab ... I told ya don't eat!!! :) He felt really bad with his stomach, then Kailash (the tuk tuk driver) came to pick up us.
Ahhh .. i felt bad. He's a nice tuk tuk driver, really.
Actually the hotel man said something to me before i went out that .... Kailash will charge us more if we go there with him. He said "he showed you a cheap place, he took you here coz here is nice to make you believe that he can be trust and you didn't pay much for the first time coz he's planning to take more from you. So if you wanna go somewhere, use our service. It's cheap. But please don't tell him that i said to you, ok?"
I said "ok, i won't tell him." But .. you know, i didn't believe him a hundred percent. I don't think that Kailash will do that. But i think the hotel man told us like that coz .. he wanted us to use the hotel service. It's a trick. Sometimes i think, couldn't I trust anyone here??? ... and yeah ... maybe couldn't.
