Calcutta

2.12.2009

I am back in India, in the second most populous Indian metropolis, where are crowded 15 millions people in the one place. Everything under giant smog cloud. I spent only few hours there but these hours have dip really very deep inside me.

Maybe this nice guy imprecated me


As I was talking to one guy about places where I was in Calcutta, he hit himself in the head and didn't believe I am still all right. But it's truth that were moments there as I was really scared. And how I was happy I didn't have my old 20D camera with me. But finally I know what means: Life under the bridge...

However, Calcutta has its real pride. It's impressive work from British colonization – Victoria Memorial. Indeed, as it appeared from behind smog cloud, it was breathtaking.

Eighteen hours have spent. But Calcutta is so huge and so many stories there that months are not enough for discover it. Maybe next time. Let's go to beaches!
