Rather than try to import my photos from my camera to ipad and somehow edit them, I figured I would post some Instagram photos along the way-- then deal with the photos I'm taking with my actual camera when I'm back home.

We've finally been in Kolkata for a day, and it's a type of heat like no other. If you didn't know, Kolkata is located near the Bay of Bengal. It's crazy humid, especially in the summers. For instance right now it's around 90 degrees, but with the humidity it makes it feel like it's over 110 degrees!! The day we landed the humidity was at a whopping 98%!

Just getting here took around 24 hours. We left our house in New Jersey around 3 pm on the 26th and arrived in Kolkata around 4 am on the 28th. We had a stopover in Brussels, and while I'm bummed we didn't get to explore the city for a day, I was excited to find that they sell Belgian chocolates at the airport!

So here are some pictures from the journey here, and from my first day in Kolkata. I was planning on posting it earlier, but I was so pooped from traveling and jet lag that I fell asleep in my clothes as soon as we got in yesterday.

I'll be posting more frequently on my Instagram: @sharmtoaster. Till next time!
