We are now in Bodhgaya, the spiritual heart of Buddhism. This place has a very international representation and the western tourists here are mostly out to have a taste of the Way of Life through meditation and philosophy courses. They often end up quite zen-like, speaking slowly and going to the Mahabodi Temple to meditate beneath the Bodi tree. The street scenes are wonderful and this place, though thronged with tourists does somehow maintains its spiritual character.

Some drama has happen in Varanasi. Some bombs were set off in a couple of areas including the train station. We actually intended to go there this morning on a train! We'll stay here for a day or two to see how the situation develops.
