A looooonnnng pending post. I had promised I would take you through Kolkata with me. Apologies!
A handful of stuff I found in Kolkata which was fascinating/wonderful/awesome/or just plain out weird. I wanted to do a picture book thingie,but I guess this doubles as that,too.
✴The famous yellow ambassador taxi. I even rode in it this time.♥
I had so many of these ,you won’t believe. They are highly perishable ,so I had to curb my craving in Kolkata only. I think I might have gained a couple of kilos or ten.:/
✴The painted on buses.
No freaking idea what is written,though.-.-
✴The weirdly colorful buildings. They are so damn cute. I clicked so many pictures of these!
✴The beautiful sites. Where the hell were these during my first visit?! -.-
Just loveeeeee these.
✴The coconut trees.
✴The howrah bridge ,ofcourse .
✴The weird take on North Indian food. I personally despised that. It didn’t look like it. It didn’t taste like it. It didn’t feel like it. But it is, what it is.
✴The roadside “market”. People had these makeshift shops on the roadside. I dunno why,but I especially liked this sight.
✴The cute little food shop/stall. The jalebis don’t look so good, though. The dull orange ones are more my thing. This yellow doesn’t compel me. At all.
✴The dakshineshwari temple. So damn famous. And pretty too.
✴And the pigeons there.
✴And yes!This is not about Kolkata, as such, but I liked the idea of newspapers in 3 languages. I only ever read English and Hindi ones. So,those ones along with bangla just made me go wow. Weird ,huh?*sheepish smile*
