Viva La Differencia

The room is not much. Basic. Shower and toilet outside.

I just came from India.

Oh, then it is a palace.

I just smiled.

I do know Indian palaces though.

It's so quiet. So utterly quiet.

There are no horns; no rickshaws (ok, I saw one but not the same)

No cows. No monkeys. No mohwak piggies eating garbage in the Central Park of Patna- the Gandhi Maidan.

Nothing on the ground. Not trash. Not bodies.

I don't think you could find two more contrasting cities than Calcutta and Amsterdam.

I don't think you could find two more contrasting places than India and the Netherlands.

The one thing I fear in both: the traffic.

Viva la differencia. Sempre.
