Asia | India | Indian Himalayas | West Bengal | Calcutta – leaving calcutta
well this is my last day in calcutta for a while as i catch the train to puri tonight for a bit of R&R on the beach. went to eden gardens yesterday (along wiyh 120,000 others) to see india lose at cricket to the australians. have enjoyed my stay in calcutta, despite the pollution, and have made some good bengali friends.
suffered my first case of the runs, but a local chemist recommended electra powder which sorted me out within 24 hours. also lost a filling, so visited a local dentist who fixed it for 350 rupees and did a very good job.
i am looking forward to the beaches of puri and topping up my suntan.
