Day 27 … Mumbai  India

Well  how different was Mumbai, it changed our minds a bit about India, still obviously very congested by far the cleanest city we visited.  We got off the ship at 8.30am, Rita found a fantastic taxi man, we hooked up with 2 other people & for the next 7 hrs our driver took us everywhere we had on our to see list, he was by far the best guide we have encountered, saw all the main sights & attraction Mumbai has to offer & more.  The main central railway station, the huge outdoor laundry, Gandhi’s old home, more temples, even the largest home in Mumbai, 37 stories high, owned by India’s richest man ( shock, he lived in it for 6 months & it is now empty ) an amazing show of mega extravagance in this city of millions,  many who live under cardboard or just on the footpath.  A glimpse of Mumbai below ……
