More Calcutta!

I'm still here!  Today was the third day of volunteering at Prem Dan.  It's going well, and we're still enjoying getting to know the ladies who live there and the other foreign volunteers.

Calcutta is a crazy place, and you must come experience it for yourself if you really want to know what it's like here.  Here are a few sights and sounds to give you very tiny glimpse:
  • Call to prayer, ringing out from several mosques in the neighborhood.  The first one is around 5:15 am.
  • Hand-pulled rickshaws.
  • Little chai stands where chai is served up in small terra cotta cups, which are then smashed on the ground.
  • Street sleepers.
  • Horns honking.
  • Trash burning.
  • Sweet mango lassis and hot garlic naan.
That's all for now.  Much love from India!
