We met up with the broker today and took a look at a few available rentals. We got to see some of the areas of the city this way and that was really interesting. Lucky for us, the weather is gorgeous, in the high 80's (31C) and very pleasant, so driving in a cab for a few hours is not bad. (Well, besides the fact that no one obeys any of the traffic signals at ALL. They might as well not exist--terrifying!)
Today, the time difference* is hitting us all hard and none of us slept more than a few hours last night. The kids were as cheerful as could be all morning, though, so we really shouldn't complain. There was one moment around 3:30 this morning, however, when BR burst into tears. I tried to find out what was wrong, but he was inconsolable for a good while. We finally were able to make out what he was saying in between sobs: "It's because you said there is no cheese in India!"
(*correction to what I said yesterday: Kolkata time= ET + 10.5 hours, which means MT + 12.5 hrs.)
