Lol, well, Mumbai is really humid ate the moment. I thought I would get used to it, but there are some days where you get slight breeze that helps a little but other days you just sweat, get hot and sticky, and it's doesn't change much at night time! I stayed at India Guest House in Colaba, the rooms are small but very clean, and for a single it's only 300 rupees a night - good for Mumbai!

Spent the days here seeing places I missed last time. Colaba is a pretty mad place, and you don't actually feel like you are in India. It's great to head down to Crawford market, and the surrounding bazaars. Chor Bazaar and Grant Road are also interesting to see, and you actually get left alone, no one bothers you this side of town.

Busaba is a hip and trendy (expensive) bar, but nice for a change, you really get to see the difference in affluence in Mumbai quickly!

Around the corner from India Guest House is street leading back up to the main Street in Colaba and the Colaba Market.

Sassoon Dock - where the sea is black
Not far up it, a man named Shankar works there on the pavement, fixing items and polishing shoes, he is an amazing person to talk to and many people call him their guru - so if you ever take the time to stop and talk to him (he is well know, worldwide and on that street) please tell him Victoria said to come to talk to him :) He is a fountain of knowlede and advice, and many people will tell you wonderful things about him!

As most of journey is planned for up North I'm heading back up through Jaipur, as I have things to do there! Bye Bye Mumbai!!
