You're riding in the only rickshaw with the top down? That is a great slice o' life pic.

I think it was very very early in the morning Viv. I remember it being stupidly crowded, even as a child.

Haha, Rick, I didn't even notice that!

very very early in the morning definitely.
I've been 4 times in India, never in Calcutta but I'm sure is enough crowded : )

Good one; nice to see the city again. It doesn't look that early, judging by the angle of the sun though. I saw Calcutta that deserted on Holi, everyone was hiding! And it was a Muslim festival too on the same day, so no one worked.
