14 January, Mumbai

It’s difficult to explain just how different Delhi and Mumbai are. While Delhi seems to be a cultural and political hub, Mumbai is all flash, cash and wealth on display. Outside our hotel we were greeted by a horse and gigantic silver carriage with flashing lights and a red velvet interior. This just isn’t something I can imagine seeing in Delhi. We’ve read that Mumbai is just as much about the slums and that a large majority of the population actually lives in the slums but the most we’ve seen so far is a small shanty town at the other end of the waterfront.
