Kolkata, India

Kolkata, India

The whole time I have been here, I have felt a subtle uneasiness at knowing and knowing other people notice that I am completely out of place.  It’s lonely to be in a foreign country where no one anywhere near you will wonder where you are if you go missing.

So.. to the boy who struck up a conversation with me while I was making my way through the park: the whole time we hung out, I wondered what my mom would say if she knew that as soon as I were in a foreign country on my own I talked to a stranger and agreed to let him take me around. :) But you have my immense gratitude — for your hospitality and for your company and for making me feel like I had someone in Kolkata who would wonder where I were if I went missing.
