The week in Calcutta had been wonderful, visited North Calcutta along old Chitpur road, went to some old Zamindar (landlord) houses, had the best Mishi doi (sweet condensed curd). Thanks to a great Bengali couple, I am in love with Calcutta even more after this trip. Experienced a bad monday where Cyclone Alia blew across the whole city and nearly crippled it for a few days. No internet access, no power or water in some places. I virtually slum through the Cyclone in the safety of a comfy apartment. The Cyclone was kinda bad, people died, homes were lost especially along the coastal areas around bay of bengal.
