 Elena, Anna and Manuel: very kind and nice volunteers from Spain!
There were about 60 young volunteers from Spain!

 Mother Teresa's tomb is washed every day and nicely decorated with fresh flowers!

 This picture of Jesus in the Mother Teresa's convent is very moving.....

We were supposed to go on a boat ride on the river but we arrived too late: it was getting dark!

                                             A group of about 25 volunteers decided to go on a boat ride....
It was quite an adventure: a group of Spanish volunteers got off at the wrong bus stop and we got separated!
Then we had to take a train ....
        It was so fascinating to take the train....

 Inside a train: women and men are in different cars.
I really enjoyed standing by the open door of the train,,,,I was able to take pictures while the train was in motion!

 There are several mosques in Kolkata and we heard the call to prayer several times during the day and at night

    This is a Hindu Temple
