24 November 2007 -Varanasi to Sarnath to Kushinagar

Checked out of hotel early as we intended to make a hop over to Sarnath as it will be deemed as incomplete for a pilgrimage without visiting the place where Buddha preached his first sermon.

A temple was hosting an exhibition of the Buddha's relics that morning and we decided to try our luck. We were in line for almost an hour and we did not seem to be going anywhere so we decided to push off before the roads leading out of Varanasi were closed due to yesterday's bombing.
