Hello From New Delhi Airport » »


Some highlights while exploring Calcutta on my own:


Communal showers

Possibly the last bastion of human-powered rickshaws

On my way to Mother Teresa’s home

Mother Teresa’s home

Where Mother Teresa slept, lived, and died.

Mother Teresa’s tomb

Tanmay then picked me up later that afternoon and took me and Steffi out on a boat ride by Vidyasagar Setu Bridge. He warned us not to touch or drink the water as “it has the very same consistency of snot.”

Hanging out before my 6am flight to Varanasi


Now off I go to Varanasi to explore the Ganges (screw you Glenn Beck!).

(If you don’t understand the Glenn Beck reference, watch this.)
