The Road Has Promises #3

Imagine the surprise, when, after crossing the messiest of roads and the dirtiest of slums in rural West Bengal, you come across a river front where all the architecture is French!

Yes, you heard that right. Chandennagore is that place. As you hit the road which is called 'The Stand', you have beautiful French architecture to sample on the right side, a lovely pavement on the left with park benches that are shaded with lush green trees. Beyond the pavement is the river Hoogly, so untouched and virgin in its form. Nobody washing clothes or bathing. Just clean water stroking the embankment.

We saw this beautiful Sacred Heart Church too... Another substantial example, that the road has promises! The image can be downloaded to make a neat wallpaper for your desktop!
