    Rickshaw wallah

    The rickshaw is still common in Calcutta. I rode in one in the 70's and felt uncomfortable enough that I've never ventured on one again.

    Bus?

    In Calcutta traffic is mainly a traffic jam. This bus looked very strange to me. I have never tried it. I mainly walked or took the tram.

    Tram

    Calcutta has a tram, which is also a subway/metro. It is very interesting to explore the city by tram. Some of the trams are from the 1930s and still running.

    If you have the time, train is supposed to have some great views. We didn't take the train, but we did get a picture of it. I think I can, I think I can.
