36 Hours To Go

Final preparations are now underway, last minute items being crammed into tank bags, and anti-malarial tablets being swallowed.  Boarding passes are printed (hopefully), and taxis booked. 

In 48 hours time, we will be landing at Dum Dum airport to face the crush of Calcutta and to meet Rasul the mechanic/guide/translator. 

Better hope he is a great mechanic, seeing as he doesn't speak any English and has never travelled beyond greater New Delhi.
