Arrived in Kolkata!31 Jan 2010, by Uncategorized in
After a long trip we have finally made it to Kolkata! It in unlike anywhere I have ever been before, there is so much going on everywhere you look. The taxi ride from the airport to the hotel was insane. I have never experienced anything quite like it. We were swerving all over the roads at high speeds while cutting off cars by inches and blaring on the horn. I was pretty certain we were gonna hit something or someone at anytime. Did I mention there are no seat belts??? It was a nail biter but I have to admit it was kind of fun Today we are just getting settled and getting to know one another, I am looking forward to a nice dinner with all the volunteers. Tomorrow we start our work at the shelters and I am so excited to meet and start working with all the girls and the children. I will keep posting with experiences from the shelters.
