Farakka to Kolkata

February 2, 2017: Today we left the ship at Farakka and took a 4 hour train ride to Kolkata, arriving in mid-afternoon.

Porters at the Howrah train station. Howrah is a good-sized city across the river from Kolkata.

Crowds in the Howrah train station

We saw surprisingly few cows wandering the streets, except in Varanasi, but here's an exception outside the train station.
