I made it to India....So tired though!! My flight left around 3:30 am (about an hour late). Egypt air was pretty nice. Besides the regular safety video, there was a prayer video to Allah. The Muslim faith is everywhere in Egypt!
Mumbai (Bombay) looks very tropical! It is still the end of monsoon season so it has rained almost non-stop all day. I am definately going to have to get an umbrella. My hotel is great! Very clean and very friendly. The Indian people seem very friendly and hospitable so far. I got a city map and will definately go exploring tomorrow (after I buy an umbrella).
So many of the women here wear beautiful, bright colored sarees. I want one! I was hoping to catch a Bollywood movie here but I think we are going to do that in Jaipur instead. There are only four people on the tour altogether (including the guide). I am so glad the tour wasn't cancelled though. I really want to see India!
I spent most of the rest of the day napping. I got no sleep on the plane. Tonight, I met the tour guide. Went out for supper and it was awesome of course. I heart Indian food! Yum!
Looking forward to exploring more. It sounds like internet might be hard to access here so the blog might not stay so up to date.
