To Kolkata, Day 3

To Kolkata, Day 3

12th of February, sunday

Today we had to wake up early because of so many things to see. This time we had to go alone without our friends. We ate breakfast and fastly seated into a taxi.

The first stop was the big Indian Museum. It was big and impressing. Only some parts, almost half of them were renovating. But it didn’t stop us from exploring. My dad had made many videos and the funny thing is that someone told him that camera is not allowed here just when we were going out. Even when there was only half sections, there was still so much to see and we had only 1 hour and half. So if you want to see Indian Museum, you have to be ready to spend there at least few hours. So as I said we didn’t have enaf time to see everything. There were sections like:

Prehistory, Minerals, Botanical section, Animal section and many many more…

After seeing most of them we looked at a time at decided to go. We were in hurry for a train to Santiniketan. And we still had one more stop. Botanical Garden. So we seated into taxi and went there. Mostly my mom wanted to go there because of the Big Banian, maybe the oldest one. When we reached I was mostly surprised because it was like a big park. You just walk like forever till you reach. So we walked and walked and after few turns we reached Big Banian which actually wasn’t a Big Banian anymore. It was Big Banian’s Forest. Yes literally it looked like 2km square forest. It survived two cyclones. But the root tree was damaged so they removed it. Sadly they covered the ‘tree’ with fence. So we could watch only from ‘outside’. Next to the banian there was lake on which people were renting boats. We denied to enjoy a ride and slowly went home. After that we went to the station. And there i took a long walk with my mom looking at all king of sweets. When the train has came it was already little bit late. In the train i had time to read my book. When we reached Bolpur we just sat into the riksha and went home.

And that was the end of our lovely journey. Mostly I liked The Healing Drum Circle. 😉
