South-siiiiide July 1, 2008

Posted by KG in Monsoon, Mumbai, Travels, Wife.

This Sunday we finally managed to explore part of south Bombay. We had a lot of fun, walking from Churchgate to Nariman Point, and then up to the by-then-closed Crawford Market. Of course I don’t have that many photos, as this was also the Sunday I forget to charge my camera battery. So someone remind me to steal some pictures from my wife when I have a chance. But for the curious, here’s a picture of the wife next to the Mahatma:

The verdict: south Bombay is pretty. And ugly. And utterly fascinating, kind of creepy, opulent, dirty, welcoming, and alienating. Sometimes all at once, but usually separated by a few yards.

Needless to say, we had a great time. We got home late, with filthy feet and sore legs. I’m anxious to do some more exploring, but we’re taking small bites at this point. Trying to do more would probably leave us, well…
