The Flower Market
This is one of the places I wanted to visit because two Lithuanian guys went there when they were in Kolkata.
I looked and wondered “How people manage to make a living selling flowers?” and then I remembered that I saw garlands in almost every bus, taxi and rickshaw that I’ve ever been on. Also, who knows how many are bought by housewives for their family rituals and for decorating the shrines of deities.
The dominant colors of the flowers were yellow, orange and red, probably, because those colors bring happiness and prosperity. The smell was very nice, but the Lithuanian guys forgot to mention that the smell is a bit different in some parts of the market (maybe because of the bathing place nearby).
And I think foreigners are a rare sight in the Flower market, because me and the other inters got more weird looks than usual.
