Our day started last night when we flew into tomorrow.
Siraj, our Travelpals host and Irshad, our chauffer, met us at the airport. What a relief to hand the what-next questions to professionals.
A free day. Wandered around and found Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharsh Vast Sangrahalaya (formerly known as the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India). Spent a few hours appreciating Indian and Himalayan antiquities. Also a Shakespeare First Folio that belonged to King George III.
Fell in love with some pashminas at Cottage Industries Emporium. Learned that goat chin wool is pricier than belly wool.
I thought Calgarians were a purposeful bunch. But, Mumbai is a place of high alert! I’m young again from a morning that included dashing about to stay out of the path of cars and scooters.
We have arrived 10 days too early for McDonald’s.
Tomorrow, a tour to Elephanta Island.
