I was in Somit guest house almost one week and that was really awesome. Somit is really great person who gave me opportunity to saw Varanasi in different light what I expect. Time there I really enjoy and volunteer with child was inspiring :-) Thanks for this

I attended a cooking class here (2hours, 600 Rs). A mother teaches me how to cook indian curry, bean soup, rice and chapati. If I had had a recipe, it would have been better.
