  Touts on the River....
by kenmerk

The touts are a pretty persistant lot most anywhere you go in India, and Varanasi is no exception. Even when trying to take a quiet dawn boat ride on the Ganges, you will find no safe harbour from them.

Here a boat laden with bells, toys, and other tourist trinkets stalk their pray on the river... (Actually, not so much different from the experience I had in Luxor Egypt on the Nile last year....)

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
