Back on the streets of Kolkata

November 22, 2009

We took once last look around The Sukapha, boarded the steamer and headed toward the Howrah Bridge.

The Howrah Bridge is the busiest bridge in the world with a stream of 100,00 vehicles a day.  It leaps dramatically across the Hoogly River in a single span.

We disembarked, our luggage was unloaded, we said our goodbyes to our British friends and were taken back to the Fairlawn Hotel.  After settling in, we headed back to the streets of Kolkata.

We were on our way to the India Coffee Workers’ Cooperative Society.

The coffee house was a meeting place for the poets, artistes, literati and people from the world of art and culture.

We were close to the Presidency College.

We had such little time left in Kolkata.  But we had enough time to visit one place just for me and one just for Bill.
