The Calcutta Christmas Visit 2013

I have just returned after a Christmas visit to Calcutta. We flew by Emirates Airline and changed at Dubai before flying to Kolkata.

Dubai has a large and impressive looking airport with a big selection of shops for Duty free section to browse through and to buy from as passengers pass through.

My wife and I had a great time celebrating Christmas and the New Year with family and friends.I got a chance to visit a number of places of interest in the city.

The New Kolkata is growing and developing on the fringes of the Old Calcutta, with multi-storeyed buildings for offices, residences, industrial estates and a growing number of Malls.My wife and I had time to spend time with our two Godsons Ashton and Logan Domingo. I had an opportunity to spend valuable time with my Dad Melvyn Brown, to meet old friends and to taste some of the culinary delights of the city, like Moghlai parathas, Aloo (Potato) rolls, chicken liver rolls, puchkas and a variety of Biryanis. We had a Christmas and New Year worth remembering. I even had enough photos and videos from our trip to make three short films based on Logan's Birthday party, time spent with Dad and a movie on our Calcutta trip.
