Varanasi is a one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. It is known as the 'city of learning' and people here attend religious celebrations almost every day of the year. Rituals are strict, and the inhabitants live an ascetic life.
On the other hand, Vama Veche seems to be exactly the opposite. Tourists that come here aim to escape from any responsability and tend to exagerate in everything they do.
But when it comes to 'rest', it seems that any difference of location, tradition and mentality gets cancelled.
