I am just arrived in Varanasi, this city where I had visited 20 years ago, and that I had so much loved! Has it changed? Am I going to find the same atmosphere there? I begin to walk on the banks of the Ganges, and I have the pleasant surprise to find the same colors, the same crowd which comes to make its ablutions in the holy river, the same saddhus who seem untied from the World. Yes, everything is there, intact, my first impressions are as well strong as before, and I already feel that I am going to feast to measure ghats all day long, and to observe these people who fascinate me.
