Tuesday 2nd December
A very early start 5.30 saw us in a bus bound for the airport.
After a final dust up with Indian officialdom when changing money – you cannot take rupees out of the country – we left horrible Calcutta bound for Bangkok. Three quarters of an hour there and off again to Hong Kong. The hotel paid for by Lufthansa was super and before and after our dinner we wandered up and down the shops.
The department store of the “Peoples Democratic Republic of China” even took dollars! We bought plenty of Christmas presents – could of bought lots more but money was short. A great place and could have spent a lot more time there (and money!!).
