17th December 2014 – Kolkata, India
Three weeks. No, they appeared more like 3 decades, Have passed through along with the winds, wafting with a curry flavour. While the city of joy gears up to shop for a not-so-cold christmas, I am heading south today. I have fish curry to savour.
I sent the bike through Gati today, and I think those guys did a good job of packing the bike thoroughly.
One of the risks with send your motorbike through parcel, is that something always tends to end up broken or bent. So, I had to oversee the packing. They removed the mirrors, packed them separately, and even packed my helmet cleanly. After I was thoroughly satisfied with the multiple levels of protection, I finally gave my ok, and my beast was off to Chennai.
And so was I, after a few hours. I said goodbye to Sudder street, to Victoria memorial, and to Kolkata, which has been nice to me for the last 3 weeks despite my constant cribbing.
For now, I have to gear up for Sri Lanka.
