THIS FELLOW WANTED ME TO TAKE A PHOTO OF HIM AND HIS FRIEND.  AFTER MY CAMERA GAVE ME ERRORS SEVERAL TIMES THEY SEEM TO BE JUST STARING INTO THE LENS.  I WAS STANDING IN THE STREET SO MAYBE HE WAS LOOKING OUT FOR MY SAFETY ON ZAKIR HOSSAIN RD!

IS THAT CAMERA EVER GOING TO WORK, SO I CAN QUIT POSING?

Day 283

McDONALD’S FAMILY RESTAURANT!  This is how it is spelled in Bangla.  This was the sign for McDonald’s on Park St. in Kolkata.  Their fries are just as tasty as anywhere in the world, that McDonald’s has a restaurant.

Day 270

YELLOW CABS OF KOLKATA (Calcutta), India.  Ever since I saw photos of my grandson sitting on the hood of a Kolkata cab, I wanted to visit the city.  I wasn’t disappointed, since the city is still full of these nice looking cabs.   Is it nostalgia thinking of the old cars in the U.S. that I was place on for photos?  Maybe, though these are still being produced so maybe they haven’t changed over the years.

This is my first photo of our 10 day visit to Kolkata.  I had forgotten my card reader, so had to wait until returning to Dhaka to post photos.  Coming home God provided protection for my laptop.  While navigating the rough street to the ferry ghat my backpack with the computer in it came hurtling down on to the floor of the bus!  I had it wrapped in two pieces of clothing for protection.  Upon arriving home I saw that the battery had started to come apart from the computer.  I shoved the battery back into place, started up the computer and there appeared to be no damage!  A blessing to be thankful for indeed!

Hope you don’t mind, as there will be many more Kolkata photos in the days to come.
