Kolkata traffic is astounding-cars, trucks, motorcycles, these three wheeled autos, everyone honking and weaving through the streets cutting each other off. Serious accidents are rare because nobody can get up enough speed to damage each other because there are just too many other vehicles in the way. Still, the number of pedestrians crossing the street or standing in the road was BONKERS. Plus, of course, the cows in the road. We took Ubers because renting a car would be suicidal and that way we didn’t have to worry about communicating the address to the driver-it just went directly to their phone.
