Friday morning we did a city tour with Ghanshyam Nepal our guide, We visited 2 Stupas (Buddhist temples) and Hindi  temples on the banks of the river where the cremations take place. While we were there we witnessed a cremation, the body is lit by the eldest son. We had photographs taken with some very religious men in colorful gold robes who seemed to be permanently stoned. In the afternoon Ganesh took us shopping to get the final bits.
