November 27
We met PC's friend from Darj. days. Even though I have heard my sister talk about Legjin over the years, I think the last time I met her was in Darj. when I was 7 or 8. Ever since she's read my book, she's been very supportive in trying to promote my book. She took us to lunch at her favorite Bengali restaurant called Kewpie's. We met the owner, Rakhi, who ordered for us. The food was delicious. We met her husband who is Director for the School of Media and Journalism at the Institute of Leadership Entrepreneurship & Development in Tangra. After hearing that I had recently published a memoir of Chinese internment, he invited me to give a talk to his students at the Institute. We set a time for Nov. 29 as we were leaving town the following day.

Arrived Kolkata on November 22. We were picked up by Pu-Chin's friend, Ramesh. They put us in a guest house not too far from them, comfortable, twin beds with our own bathroom. It came with breakfast every morning with tea, toast and omelet. It was a good stay, like being in someone's home. Also very affordable. Since Krishna, PC's classmate from Loreto, just had a hip replacement we spend most of the days visiting her in their house.
