In other news, Olaf and I take the overnight train to Varanasi tonight, leaving from Howrah station. (I am hoping to stop somewhere and pick up some Kolkata mishti for the ride.) Looking forward to all the colorful freakiness that Varanasi is. Bhaskar’s aunt (the palm reader, remember?) warned me not to go unless I want to be swept away by my spiritual side. She thinks I may well become a saddhu and never leave.
Today Olaf and I wandered a little around New Market and took some pics near our hotel. I added them to the most recent album, click on the pic below to see the whole thing.
