The city they choose to die

This city is the most shocking one in India. The river side has ceremonies at dawn, cremations in the morning, women cleaning their clothes all day, procesions of purification, children playing, holy cows, tourists.
The streets smell like the worst bathroom ever and there are cows eating scumb next to little boys running and tuc tucs trying to turn the corner. WHAT A GREAT EXPIRIENCE! You cant miss it!
