Weekend Update

Andy didn't end up leaving this weekend. His friend who was taking him got dysentery. I ended up resting and reading all Saturday and on Sunday I went to the Kolkata Film Festival I saw "The Other Half" from Iran and "No Trains No Buses" from Holland. They were both excellent.

I also met the other black woman living in Kolkata. She's a media researcher from Cameroon, and was there translating for a Senegalese director. (Yes I got to use my bad french) Her friend convinced her to go because there would be at least one other black person there. That's me. I was actually invited to the director's dinner, but opted to meet up with friends I hadn't seen in weeks. A good weekend all in all.
