We survived the ‘tour of all tours’ today. We had an air conditioned bus which took us around some very interesting famous sites. We first stopped off at the Botanical Gardens, where the Guinness World Record holding Banyan Tree is located. This is one single tree whose roots have spread to form numerous trees; you have to see it to believe it!! Next was the monument erected in remembrance of those who died in The Black Hole of Kolkata where 123 out of 146 men died. It is placed in St Johns churchyard. Our last part of the tour was at the Queen Victoria Memorial which consisted of a huge marble building that had an exhibition inside. It also had beautiful gardens that we enjoyed walking through. It has become clear to us all that Kolkata was once a beautiful city as evidence of grander times can be seen everywhere.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing and visiting the market again. We are looking forward to a nice early 5:30 start tomorrow morning as we are all going to Mass at a very special place.
