Macau crept up on me. Half expecting the cacophony of noise and bodies that pulse through the streets of China, I was thrilled to find that the blend of Portuguese and Chinese history was not relegated to schoolbooks.

Spice and Spirit at the Aarti Ceremony on the Ganges River

jJ-2RAT1yOLngzyQk6PeEtqvHDXioW5lRPDo1iTNQ64My last night in Varanasi was spent at the highly anticipated Aarti ceremony, along the banks of the Ganges River. The ceremony is held each night at dusk, with many people renting a boat to watch from the water. A mixture of prayer, incense, fire, and sound, the ceremony is a treat for the senses. I could not understand what was being chanted, but the energy along the river was one of peace and clarity.
