Audio Slide Show: Kolkata (Calcutta), India

A and I are back in Bangkok now after four exceptional days in Kolkata (Calcutta) India.

Here’s a 2 minute, 20 second audio slide show I’ve put together with some images and sounds I captured in the city. ((My previous audio slide shows about anti-government protests here in Bangkok can be found here and here.))

For more images, you can find 35 photos from our trip in this Flickr set.

(Note: Those of you reading this via my rss feed will need to click through to view the audio slide slow on my site.)

  1. @Michael: thanks. Ha, there *are* women in Calcutta, yes. But men are, for some reason, overrepresented in these pics of mine.

    @Jeff: appreciate the kind words.

    Great slide show. Big fan of the street audio as well.

    Enjoyable photos as usual, Newls. Thought the ‘talkie’ slide show was cool too. Never thought of book vending as a man’s job but perhaps things are different on College Street. Are there no women in Kolkata?
