sunday post: sunrise

Sunday, June 3:  Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post challenge this week is Sunrise.  He writes: Sunrise or sun up is the instant at which the upper edge of the sun appears on the horizon in the morning.  The term can also refer to the entire process of the sun crossing the horizon and its accompanying atmospheric effects.

Here are some pictures from sunrise in Varanasi, India.

the ghats

The word “ghat” means step, and the ghats in Varanasi are named after maharajahs. There are 80 ghats that border the river.  Hindu pilgrims flock to the ghats to either wash away their sins in the sacred Ganges or to cremate their dead.

      • Sorry Cathy…my computer is playing silly buggers with me and I end up on wrong posts…and likes won’t work…it has taken three hours to look at about 20 blogs for this. I am giving up !!!!!!! I admit defeat computer…damn you !!!!!! Maybe I’d better get my butt over to Madhu’s blog and see what I ended up calling her. Oh dear…not the way I expected to spend my Monday. 😉

      • Oh noooo Jo!! I hate computer problems. Don’t worry or fret about it though! And don’t waste your time correcting things like this; it really doesn’t matter. We all know & love you just the way you are!! I know about computer glitches, because I have the worst internet connection imaginable in Oman!! It’s a wonder I can write a blog at all!!

      • Ummmmmm at the moment I beg to differ…the worst internet connection is here in NZ. At least until I change providers …hehehe
        You love me as is !!!
        I needed to hear that after the weekend I have had.
