I made it to Mumbai and I must say, I LOVE IT here. The people are amazing, so friendly and helpful, the colors so bright and vivid, and the smells go from wonderful to disgusting in minutes when driving through the city. It's fantastic! The driving...oh, the driving. Egypt really prepared me for this place because I do not feel much culture shock. I did a day driving tour with a local taxi driver today, along with my new travel companion Eoin (Owen) from Ireland, and learned and saw so much. Everyone is so busy here doing their work, and each is identified by their job, like a lunch box delivering-wallah, a water-wallah, a taxi-wallah, etc. (wallah meaning their job). Well, I figure I am a traveler wallah.
I have much to say about my first day here, but this traveler wallah is tired and jumping on a train to Goa in the early a.m., so for now I am just writing to say I made it, and sometime soon I will write in much detail and post the incredible pictures I've snapped.
