Purpose of Varanasi

I think that I understand why millions of Hindus come to Varanasi.

I also understand the curiosity of tourists.

But why I am here? Why did I have to come here now? Why do I keep returning to the burning ghats? Is the Ganges beautiful or simply filthy? Is Varanasi as big as Mark Twain said? What is Varanasi?VaranasiAll I know is that it is no longer about the purpose of my life but about the raison dêtre of Varanasi.

      Bonjour Martine! Thanks for visiting my blog.

      I usually travel with my husband and we organize everything by ourselves. I like writing about food and restaurants –my passion! After all I am married to a Frenchman 😉

      I have worked a little bit of everywhere in the world (my specialty is the emerging markets and economic development there).

      Have a great summer in Montpellier, which is the first French city I visited back in 1989… 🙂 A beautiful place and region.

      Best, Miia
