Calcutta is CRAAAAAAAAAAAZY.
We arrived in Calcutta this morning after a long-ish train ride from Varanasi. People are just everywhere. We attempted to go find a place to eat and between the heat and the hunger, Ant and I almost killed each other. We found some place with aircon and chilled out. After a long nap and some TV (I take full advantage of TV whenever I can) we were in much better spirits.
Then came the massive cockroach.
I made Ant kill it even though I was just as capable. We had just visited the Indian Museum (which had a weird mix of random exhibits) and this insect put some of their specimens to shame. I've dealt with mosquitos, midgies, dung beetles, fleas, bedbugs, locusts (ate 'em BBQ style in China), massive grasshoppers, etc, but nothing was a gross as the slime that came out of this cockroach. It also just HAD to be in the shower.... ick.
Tomorrow Ant is going to attempt to find us a new place while I sit around and soak in a bit more boob tube. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..........
