Mumbai

Today I met up with a friend and we walked all around Mumbai. First we went to the Chor Bazaar, which is the big market place that sells everything that was stolen in Mumbai. You can find everything from food to electronics. You want it, they got it.

Then we went to the Gate of India and Colaba market. It’s one of the cleaner parts of the city, so it’s nice to walk around there. This led us to the Queen’s Necklace, which is a big stretch along the water. We walked along it and got all the way to the beach. We stopped for a snack of some local street food. Always a big gamble. But so far, I feel ok.

Returning to my hotel I took the Sea Link, which is a special stretch of highway that bypasses all the local traffic. By simply paying a toll worth about $1, you take the express path that jets out over the sea. Worth every penny.
