Varanasi in Vancouver

Today i am having a really India feeling day.  It is hot here (i know it's not India hot, or even Ontario hot for that matter, but for us westcoasters it is hot), so as i sit here doing a translation from old Hindi with the fan on, i feel sort of like i am back in Banaras*.  I have a cold glass of water and weights holding down my papers so they don't fly away.  The major difference is that if i were in Banaras and wanted to do a translation in the mid afternoon, the power would likely be out - therefore no fan.  So without the fan i would probably be lying naked on my bed thinking about cold things, or maybe i would be sitting in the shower.  You know, just hanging out in the only place where there is some relief from the heat.
 
OOOOH, and i have just come up with greatest idea.  I will add a weatherpixie from Banaras to the blog!  How exciting, now everyone can know the temperature in Banaras as compared to that of Vancouver at anytime!  I can't believe i've been at this a year (blogging that is) and have only thought of this now.  I wonder what other flashes of brilliance i will have today.  Watch out world 'cause here i come.

* Just a little FYI for those of you not in the know - Banaras and Varanasi are the same place.

Brilliant! Send some of that Varanasi or Vancouver heat Toronto way, along with some sunshine!
