Mumbai!

Mumbai is 12.5 hours ahead of Calgary 

 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.

Tired after the flight. But Siraj was there for us!

 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.

 Greg and Surya from 12th century CE

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.
