Day 212: Back to Mumbai

After 31 long hours, with a numb bum, I eventually arrived back in Mumbai. Since I was last here in January the city had changed. Or at least my perception of it has… instead of the overwhelming chaos, noise, smells and colours that saw on arrival, the city now seemed to represent modern India. Women wearing jeans and t-shirts, business men, smart restaurants and bars.

But yes, it was still chaotic.

Day 198: One day in Bangalore

This morning I arrived in Bangalore where I spent the day before continuing my journey onwards to Kerala. My day in the city happenedto coincide with a rickshaw strike, leaving me to tackle the Bangalore public bus system (never have I love London buses more).

Whilst exploring some of the local back streets and bazaars I came across this neat temple covered in Ganesh statues.
