Darjeeling vs. Varanasi

Darjeeling = cold, quiet, highlands, clear air, relaxed people, little hassle, rainy, amazing views of the Himalaya.

Varanasi = hot, loud, flatlands, smoky, aggressive people, lots of hassle from everyone, dry, holy, chaotic.

The similarities? Both have lots of tourists and tiny, winding roads that vehicles have trouble fitting through.

Needless to say, I miss Darjeeling.
