While having breakfast with Yuko and Sho at the Everest Restaurant at Pahar Ganj पहर गंज (New Delhi) I heard a girl talking about Switzerland and St. Gallen. I had to come to India, to meet a local girl from St. Gallen. The world is small, but big enough, not to meet in the little town of St. Gallen. We all where ready to go with the train to Varanasi वाराणसी an other 769 km journey on the sleeper train. But i promise you, it will never get bored, as there a lot of people asking you this and that. In the end you must even fight to have your sleep. I went not the first time in Varanasi, i been there in 1999 already, we came here now, as there was a total lunar eclipse on July 20th 2009, and best to see in India in Varanasi. And yes, i did the picture of the total eclipse, check the last picture, i used a filter, to directly shoot in to the sun, otherwise it would be too bright. Britt (from St. Gallen) and I went also to Sarnath सारनाथ as i was curious how it looks now as i been there also 10 years ago. Sarnath is a important Buddhist place, as Buddha had his first teaching to his close followers in the deer park. After some days in Varanasi I hit the train again up north back to New Delhi नई दिल्ली.
