... followers and family. He was certainly a man of high principles who walked the walk as well as talking the talk. The museum had books and an amazing collection of photographs taken throughout his life. We were taken aback to see photographs of him as a child, and a young man, as all our images of him are of him in his later years. We also saw photographs of his wife who stayed at his side throughout all of his life until the end of hers. The museum went through the story of ...
... posters). All fake! We weren't allowed to be snooping, and we weren't allowed to take photos, but we grabbed a sneaky couple (thanks Megan!) The crew was 'busy' (as in Indian style looking busy but not much happening) getting sound equipment set up. We were ushered out. Found some chai tea. We were all getting excited, then ..... The elements conspired against us. Our morning agent informed us there would be no shooting today ...

We taught how to brush their teeth - stressing why it was so important, and singing a 'Brush brush brush your TEETH' song to make it a fun activity.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHilton Mumbai International Airport Mumbai (Bombay)
The room was lovely, the slippers, robe and towels were soft and comforting after a 14 hour flight. The surprise roses upon check-in and the chocolates in the room were GREAT. Breakfast was huge and lovely.
Only downside I would say is the price of a car to the airport... my trip there cost about about $2.50 (using a pre-pay Taxi service from the Airport) but using the hotel service was about $23.00. Just FYI.
