The First Week in Kolkata

July 10th, 2012 | dustin

It’s hard to describe Kolkata.

Neither of us have ever experienced a city like this before.

To say it is a “sensory overload,” is much too general to address even the sights, sounds, and smells we find on the block we live on.

Here on S.N. Banerjee Road in “the heart of the city,” the specific mixture of beauties, grotesqueries, flavors, aromas, and stenches changes every hour of every day.

We are just learning to take it all in.

Camac Street

*It is monsoon season in India. The rains come by at least once a day. Every so often, you find yourself under the awning of a shoe store on Camac Street, waiting for the rain to pass.*

Victoria Memorial

*The Victoria Memorial. A memorial hall for the glory of the raj.*
