OCT 18, 11 .. LEAVING CALCUTTA

CAPTAIN..  YES..  I THOUGHT YOU HAD A TRAIN TO CATCH TODAY.. I DO.. WELL WHAT ARE YOU DOING WRITING ANOTHER POST..

TID- BIT..

As I have already written.. I am leaving on the 11:20 Hours (11:20PM) train for Agra  late this evening.. well I am set .. have my bed in the dorm at Sealdah Railway Station.. and at 3PM.. I checked out of my hotel here.. the Hotel had graciously given me a VERY LATE CHECK OUT TIME..

Past tense .. I was checkeD out .. my bill was paid and settled .. I had passed a few gratuities around to the front desk ladies.. and was visiting with the Manager of the Hotel.. just making some small talk..

What time is your flight..  I do NOT fly in India, I take trains .. What time is your train..  11:20 PM ..  What are you going to do until 11:20PM for the next seven hours .. Go to Sealdah Station and ‘hang out’ .. Why don’t you STAY HERE IN YOUR ROOM? There will be NO CHARGE TO DO SO! ”

This from THE MAN.. this from the Hotel MANAGER ..

Well.. ahhhh..  uhhhhhh..  I guess I COULD DO THAT ..

So out and off went gimmesome roy to the land that knows no time..

SO BACK UP TO MY ROOM I GO WITH ALL MY LUGGAGE.. air conditioning back on.. ceiling fan back on.. you know.. comfortable..

WELL WHY NOT COME OVER TO THE INTERNET CAFE AND SEE IF I CAN GET A COMPUTER.. I HAVE AND HERE I SIT..

I COULD WRITE A  BOOK TITLED .. “WHY ME GOD ? ” about all  the seemingly never ending good things that continue to happen to me..

Now to another POST .. October 18, 2011 ..

see you there.. smiles and love .. cap..
