What monsoon?

Viewed: 211  

Seriously, what monsoon? Had started to worry a bit before I came away looking at the forecast, but its been hotter than hot here actually wish it would rain! Flew in to Delhi and quickly left to head north, Delhi has a certain crazy charm about it but the novelty wears off after a day. Caught a mental night bus to a place called Haridwar, very spiritual city where the Ganges River comes from the Himalayas. Very busy place as pilgrims have started a 60km walk from here to Varanasi, well funny walking around people are so intrigued by us and keep stopping us to have a picture taken with their entire family! Really enjoying Mandy's company for this first month, shes really easy to travel with bein an ol' pal. We went to a 'Ganga Aart' in Haridwar, a Hindu ceremony by the Ganges, where spiritual leaders and people light candles on beds of flowers and set them floating off on the river, beautiful.

 
Now in a place called Rishikesh, this place in absolute heaven!! We are staying in an ashram which is just bloody amazing, our room has a balcony overlooking the Ganges, Im doing a hatha yoga class every morning and have just started a week detox today called Pancha Karma. Its basically a full body service which draws out all of the toxins in your body. Had an amazing consultation and was told Im 'Pita' which is fire and water and the week has been specifically tailored to me. Had my first day, god it was good! Had an Indian head massarge, a full body massarge, oil head treatment and a steam bath. I think Im just gonna live here forever now!
