After waiting a bit at one shelter for a driver (who we never saw due to traffick), witnessing a women get hit by a car (she walked away, no worries), and downing half my water in the over 100 degree heat (gotta love humidity), we got some directions and headed out to Nijoloy, the other shelter that we are volunteering at. Looking out at the passing city I felt as though Kolkata is a city in transformation and probably has been and will be for years. We past numerous unfunished buildings, some were be lived in or worked in.
Its different to see dogs and cows walking the streets like they are humans going about their daily business. No one bats an eye, so neither do I. Riding in a car here is like being on a roller coaster, "please keep arms and hands in the car at all time until we come to a complete stop". But after playing chicken with numerous cars, again…you got to go with it, embrace the experience and hold on!no comment
