Mumbai, our last stop…After a short flight from Udaipur, we arrived at hot and slightly muggy Mumbai (Bombay). Mumbai is the wealthiest city in India and the second most populous city in the world after Shanghai. So, we had prepared ourselves for a lot more traffic and noise, especially after the peaceful Udaipur.
We were to stay with our dear friend, Vera…
Both my husband and I agree that the most memorable part of our trip to Mumbai was actually being outside of it…
“A thought went up my mind to-day
That I have had before,
But did not finish,--some way back,
I could not fix the year,
Nor where it went, nor why it came
The second time to me,
Nor definitely what it was,
Have I the art to say.
But somewhere in my soul, I know
I've met the thing before;
It just reminded me--'t was all--
And came my way no more.
― Emily Dickinson
