Day 174 Mumbai, India

The tour this morning (as described yesterday) was great. My favorite stop was, as usual, dhobi ghats… the place is amazing. In the afternoon we went back to the Gateway to India and the Taj Mahal Hotel for a while and explored the Colaba Markets. It was a great day overall… I love India. It is such a colorful place filled with contrasts. S a book I read a few years ago described India, it is a fine balance between hope and despair. It is a place where many struggle and where many others prosper…. Hope does exist.

Yep Jeff, you can say so yourself, GREAT Fotos. From yesterday, to Whitey: no the trains don't have floor mats but just lots of excuses and promises about quality and perhaps stopping in the future. Or maybe just thinking about being a non-stop high speed train to somewhere. Would love to talk further but I cannot stop, my car is a Toyota.
