Mumbai Bookstalls

Mumbai, formerly Bombay, has graciously hosted Nik and I’s adventure for the past three days.  Our bus ride from Udaipur was better than I expected, but sleepless.

So far we have walked through neighborhoods, browsed bookstalls and bookstores, watched pick-up cricket matches, seen scores of outdoor laundry stalls, ridden the commuter train during rush hour, strolled along the beach side, and walked out to a mosque along a land bridge that is consumed by the sea at high tide.  Mumbai is the first truly “international” city we have been in since San Francisco in May, and it is a huge relief.  There is something about this city that is familiar although it is still so foreign.

We leave tomorrow on a day train to the beach state of Goa.  The area has come with mixed reviews, but our goal is to find a peaceful end to our month long journey.


we leave for india friday! can. not. wait.


Oh my!!!! I wish you guys SOOOO much luck. You’re going to love it, and I can’t wait to hear about it.
