Travel Tip: DO NOT wear flip flops to a fish market! You slip in slimy fish bits, your feet get submerged in smelly fish water and the flop flicks scum up the back of your legs
Took a walk to Sassoon Docks where the fishing boats arrive. The variety of fish was incredible - from 2 meter sharks, eels, prawns, squid and others I did not recognise
Took a stroll to the Dhobi Ghats where about 45% of Mumbai's washing is done. Each 'flogging stone' is handed down from generation to generation and this is the Dhobis most valuable item. It is quite incredibly how washing comes from all over the city and doesn't get mixed up.
Ended back in Colaba and my smelly flop broke. Bought new ones from street stall and left my broken fishy ones with him. He couldn't believe that I didn't want them and even offered to put them in a packet for me.
