Welcome to Kolkata/Calcutta

Another big, noisy, and famous Indian city, but unique from the others, of course. For one thing, it’s close to Bangladesh and the Himalayas, which I think is pretty darn cool.

We visited the Victoria Memorial, with its entertaining history of Calcutta museum; also yet another church; had lunch at the Hope Cafe, part of a successful foundation that trains kids for careers in hospitality, beauty, and tech; and then entered Mother Teresa’s home/clinic/tomb site.

Calcutta seems much cleaner than Delhi to me, but when I mentioned this to my travel compatriots, they laughed at me and decided I was greatly mistaken. I’m not so sure, but whatever.

Here are some photos. Hope you enjoy them.
