Friday the 8th we sight-see in Kolkata. First we go to Mother Teresa's Motherhouse.
|Mother Teresa's tomb|
We walk to the Kali Temple. There is a sook like area of shops outside the temple courtyard.
|The food seller has his little boy with him. Over in the corner are food bowls made out of leaves pinned in a cone shape with a sharp piece of wood. Other leaf bowls and plates are pressed into bowl and plate shapes. Very green food service.|
|the tree planted by bird poop is growing out of the side of the house. People keep them and only cut them down if they threaten to destroy the house.|
|A goat was sacrificed for the Kali temple.|
|Over kill on this 8 foot high wall. Topped with broken glass, nails and spikes.|
William buys me a set of bracelets that signify a Bengali woman is married.
|Me with the red and white shell braclets|
|in the shops|
|a dog just had puppies. Most dogs are strays.|
|a ritual first haircut for this boy|
|Chopping the coconut|
|A Jain temple|
On to the Victoria Memorial Museum. Very dusty exhibits inside shows a lack of a proper curator.
|Where some defeated British soldiers perished in the black hole of Calcutta|
