Everywhere in Benares, you can find painted adverts about guesthouses, yoga classes, sweet lassi, etc. Indeed very needed considering the maze those old small streets are. And highly photogenic.
That young man was actually painting an advert about Hindi classes… Not for Indians to get to read but probably for tourists who want to dig into the local culture and reach nirvana some day…
Those signs are primarily aimed at orienting tourists, locals don’t pay much attention to it.
It fits into the ruins as well, adding to the “suranée” atmosphere of the city.
The German Brown Bakery is very well know by tourists, this is one of the first spots address you exchange with other backpackers.
Free wifi. Comes together with free cow shit – Freshness guaranteed!
