I felt a bit uncomfortable watching the cremation ceremony from the opposite side of the river...the river is filthy and really, I couldn't wait to leave. Our guide was describing what was happening during the ceremony but I felt sorry for the families as it is such a tourist attraction with everyone taking photos. There were monkeys running around which took your mind off what was happening across the river....for a few minutes. This is a place I won't forget in a hurry and a definite insight into another culture.
