      ... for food and the sound of vendors coming... "Chai, chai, coffee, chai?" I was 15 hours into my journey to Kolkata and surprizingly, I had really enjoyed my time thus far. A community seemed to grow quite quickly on the train and different travelers would come and go. A lot of people were very interested to talk to me, curious about where I am from. Most people thinking I'm nuts for traveling India alone. The next ten hours somewhat seemed to fly by and before I knew ...

      ... decided to hit the Kolkata bar scene. We went to a pub at first and enjoyed another cold one before ditching the early sleepers and finding a night club. 1100 rupees the door man said. We literally laughed out loud and said are you joking. Nope! So needless to say that was too rich for our blood even with free drinks seeing as it was already almost midnight. So we walked a bit further and found a bar with an Indian cover band that were actually really good. Terry, Tamara, ...

So she stuck around and then said she was going on ...

      ... out in flowers and palm frawns. Also, during every puja there are little shrines set up for the gods that go all night with huge replicas of the gods, lights, music, and flowers.

      ... and more tea. We had biryani, the best tandoori chicken, ever (really!) and a weird chicken thing wrapped in American cheese cooked in the tandoor. It's called rezala (note, none of us at the cheese). We couldn't leave without sampling kathi rolls, bhel puri, and other tasty roadside snacks. We also discovered Kingfisher Strong, an 8% beer. Beers here are marked for sale in each particular state. Who knew! Sites wise we visited Victoria memorial (a grand building and park ...
