The sail into Cochin was beautiful as usual… The Chinese dipping nets are really interesting. Of course today is the long awaited day where I fly to Varanasi India, one of the holiest sites for Hindus and near the birthplace of Buddhism. We arrived around 10:30 and I stayed aboard until 1:00 for my pickup for the airport. The flight to Delhi. It took about an hour to get to the airport (not 2 hours as Goway Travel insisted) so I had a long wait for my flight departure. My overnight stay went pretty well except for the exceptionally long drive to the hote. After checking in I went out and explored the streets and had a bite to eat. Then it was off to bed to rest up for my flight and exploration of Varanasi the next day.
