Mumbai

The final leg of the trip – Bombay / Mumbai. I’ve never much enjoyed the Indian cities I’ve visited on previous trips; New Delhi, Bangalore, Jaipur, Agra. They’re polluted, noisy chaotic places, but I loved Mumbai.

The architectural remnants of the Colonial past, going shopping on Colaba Causeway in the January sales, snacking on street food everywhere I could find it, exploring the Prince of Wales Museum (now called Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalay), watching cricket at The Maidan Oval, wandering through Crawford Market and having a final curry. My new favourite city in India, here are my favourite pictures from a busy day exploring Mumbai…
