The Most Trusted Man in Varanasi.

A private driver in India is a luxury beyond compare. Ours is Bholu, pictured here with the gleaming pearl car with which he ferries us safely through the chaotic streets of Varanasi. Rules of the road barely exist here; there is no hierarchy--cars, buses, bicycle-taxis, motorcycle-taxis, pedestrians, cows, water buffalo, dogs and goats, arbitrarily make their own way, utterly brazen against the intentions, actions or safety of anyone, being or beast. We would love to walk, and maybe we'll get to in some of the smaller towns and villages of India; for now, we're just happy to have our driver, Bholu.
