Morning boat ride (lots of pics)

Marcus (the German from the retreat) Gino (my singing teacher from Manali) and I went for a morning boat ride to see Varanasi from a different perspective. Woke up at 5am to beat the dawn.

Gino at the helm. Perhaps you should just stick to music Gino.

It is not the custom in Varanasi for women to go on the water in boats; men only; so that's why Nori was absent. Actually, that's not true, she wasn't feeling well.

Yeah, gotta concur w.r.t. the profile pic. You look like a worm (somehow). Aaanyhoo....nice pics. Danke shon. I've half a mind to come join you guys during my winter break. Do I want a vacation, or do I want to go to India? Hmm.

Jake, you look so handsome in the photo on the boat, not a dork at all. Love you. IRC
