A Crappy Day in Mumbai
Travel blog post written: Wednesday 11/02/04
Not a particularly good nights sleep. The room, as I said, was very cell like, with half the walls not being solid but cast iron grilles. This meant that noise carried!
A lunatic Indian next door decided to blare out crap Hindi songs until two in the morning, A french couple decided to swap hotels at about two thirty, and other people were constantly talking and shouting.
After breakfast, I left the hotel with the intention of taking a trip over to Elephanta Island. I took a photo of India gate, and the massive Taj Hotel, but because of lack of sleep, and didn't have the patience or energy to deal with the constant bombardment of hassle by the touts and beggars, and so gave the trip a miss.
I wandered around, looking at very impressive Victorian buildings, and had lunch in the Subway again. Afterwards, a bought a book and a T shirt, and checked the net.
