Welcome to India: Lesson I – getting some cash

– ATM #1: accepts no VISA cards
– ATM #2: out of money
– ATM #3: time out
– ATM #4: out of service
– Money exchange #1: sells only foreign currency
– Money exchange #2 & last available option on the entire airport: tries to rip me off

2.5 hours & 3 personal special permissions (issued by the Calcutta Airport Manager) to reenter the security areas later I got some cash and am ready to stand in the queue for a cab (currently no cabs available & 1 hour waiting time, because 50,000 cabs are on strike today).
