Observations in Mumbai

My observations in Mumbai:

1.  With regards to motor transportation, Mumbai almost seemed as if it were a lawless place where people do whatever the hell they want.  Horrendous traffic is mixed with every driver trying to beat out the car next to them.  They squeeze their car in any possible space turning 3 lane roads into 5 lane roads.  No real barrier between pedestrians and motor vehicles, even on the highways.

2.  It was really eye opening to see how bad the impoverished areas really are where there is no running water and no electricity.  It truly makes you grateful for what you have.

3.  It's the first time in a long time where I've been able to catch sunrise coming up over the mountains.  It was a truly awesome sight.

4.  The food is AMAZING.  I gained a good amount of weight in my short time in India due to me stuffing my face at every opportunity I got.  Most of the time I was eating in a cafeteria and I had no idea what I was eating, but it was always delicious.

The service was amazing.  A lot of the restaurants would serve all the dishes into your plate. 

Okay I think I went a bit overboard with posting pictures of food.  Crap... now I'm hungry.
