last night i flew 1.5 hours east from delhi to kolkata – the city in west, bengal india that i will call home for the next 12 months. i arrived on bengali new year – the start of the year 1418 – and everyone seemed to be out celebrating in the streets.
i, however, opted out this time as i was exhausted from the flight. so i cuddled up in my hotel, ordered some food and feel asleep to the most beautiful sounds…american tv!
this morning, i woke up to my first views of kolkata from the hotel:
tomorrow i have my first foray into the city – but for now – i’m going to savor each moment alone with the 500 hotel cable channels.
