A Breather in Kolkata
Victoria Memorial, Kolkata
The tea planter and his wife love a quick getaway to the heart of the city. One little whiff of urban life is good for our lungs. It refreshed us before I returned to my station on the verandah and the husband to prepare for the season, and to fight the drought.
...and Queen Victoria's Statue
City walks were good fun, but the pavements in Park Street finished off my 'stout walking sandals'. I sought comfort in Flury's coffee and confections.
Isnt it lovely here? Even the decor is all caramel, coffee and cream! Service comes with a smile. Went back again for breakfast (hash browns, rolls, muffins, and coffee). Mmm.
The window display reflects Park Street. Well, they wouldnt let me photograph it from inside. I loved the old baking tins and moulds on display, and I wonder if the cocoa pods and beans are visible.
So that is my world this week, and do see other people's worlds here.
