I could hardly believe it when the plane landed in Kolkata Airport. I was finally in India!
It took me another hour and a half to get through immigration and the visa line, but when I left the airport Stephen was waiting for me, holding a piece of card board with my name on it.
Don’t worry about the crazy driving Dahn texted me, you’ll be scared shitless, but you’ll be safe.
I was actually silently cheering the driver on. The group was scheduled to leave for Puresa Humanitarian at 10:00 and we were stuck in rush hour traffic a half hour from the hotel.
Dahn told me later they would have waited for me or would have had the driver of our little bus take me there whenever I got in. But it all added to the excitement.
At the hotel, Dahn was waiting for me in the lobby with a big hug. I checked into my room and 20 minutes later we were on the road.
I took a couple of videos of what the ride was like. This one is from the trip to Puresa Humanitarian.
