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.

  2. 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?
