I have been given a list of 27 foods to try whilst I am in India. I am religiously ticking them off as I go along. What remains to be seen is if each line item equals to 1kg of weight – on me!
Some of you may have seen this photo already, and I have included it again because I’d like to recount the experiences I’ve had with the motor-rickshaws.
I arrived in Mumbai in the early hours of Monday morning. Amazingly the streets were alive with movement. People, cars, bustle. I experienced it as a city that does not sleep or stand still.
After about 2 hours of sleep, I woke to a sun that was trying to make its presence known through the smoke. I was surprised that weather reports on Mumbai reported “smoke” as a weather status. I thought weather was supposed to be those natural phenomena that regulate the lives of human beings. It is definitely not a man-made, dare I say it…phenomena. And smoke is! So I just found it strange that it was listed in the weather website as part of the weather report. I suppose global warming has made things a bit confusing for us all.
In any event, this photo was taken from my hotel window, of a sun that was trying to rise and show itself through the smoke. I think it made for a beautiful photo.
