Where I stayed
Next day I walked around in the glorious sunshine and even took in a cricket game in the oval near the hotel. Decided to take a chance and try the local food straight away and get the sickness over with early and went for a chicken massala and rice with garlic naan and a kingfisher beer and was delighted at both the food and the fact I came through unscathed.
Did a tour of Mumbai next day taking in...............The Dobi Ghats (Where 5000 men take care of the cities laundry in an outdoor wash area), The High court (Where you can watch trials take place) and some fantastic Mosques,temples and the hanging gardens.
Only stayed for 2 full days before making my way to Delhi but overall my first experiences and impressions of India were mixed some good some bad but my appetite for discovery had been awakened !!!
