BANARAS-BENARES

the oldest city in the world (or India?)

Here people dry their clothes on the burial fire pits while corpses burn. The children steal logs of wood off the burning fire to play games around the mourning family, while the latter ones are busy trying to keep the cows off the dead body covered on gee and sweet stuff.
The kites swim in the sky of this city, from dawn till dusk.
Crazy but auspicious. One of my favourite cities in the world.
La ciudad mas vieja donde la gente seca la ropa en las hogueras funerarias mientras que los cadaveres se queman lentamente. Los ninhos aprobechan a robar troncos de madera de los fuegos mientras que la familia practica el silencio y los rituales al cadaver. A su vez, intentando que las vacas no se suban a comerse el cadaver que esta cuvierto de gee y todo tipo de substancias dulces.
EL cielo es un mar de cometas todos los dias.
Sagrada.
Una de mis favoritas.
