    ... homes to the homeless women living on the side of the street cooking them over a fire in the central reservation. Street snacks like chana masala bring alive a pretty dull pulse, and the selection of kachori, pakora and samosa pastry fried treats available all around the country are always a surprise - each filling individual to the chef and the ingredients available to them. I now realise my deep love for the luxury of the sanitation, as well as an etiquette and ...

    We arrived in Kolkata at 9am ready for a whistle stop tour of the famous city. A short taxi journey, with the obligatory period spent getting lost and even longer period stuck in traffic, and we found our hostel for the night.

A quick toothbrush and we were off to ...

    ... strange to be away from Auroville and cooped up in small closed hotel rooms and heat absorbing cities. We were used to sleeping with no fans or air-con and now even a fan feels to cold sometimes.

    I was a little bit sad to leave Tamil Nadu, but not the dust, dirt and bad traffic. The nicest thing for sure has been the Tamil people, in general they have been absolutely wonderful, kind and hospitable. Always saying hello ...
