Bombay Part Three
Just this cool sign I saw while walking in the Colaba shopping district of Mumbai. Walking around Colaba can be a overstimulating. People come up to you and want to sell you drums (not drugs) and oversize balloons. At traffic stops, women and children may come up to you asking for mula. But the best part is that people will come up and want to sell you books! I wish we had that in LA.
Yes, Virginia, there is toilet paper in India. Why did I listen and bring baby wipes? Most bathroom ahave a pressure pump/ bidet type sprayer AND toilet paper. Very refreshing for the privies. Though the mini Charmin toilet paper rolls I brought did come in handy, as they would in every city. Every time I go out to see a band, I swear I'll bring a little roll with me. A full on toilet taper assortment at the Crawford Market:
This cool little shrine thing I saw walking near the Taj President Hotel. Uh, I forgot what it was. To keep away evil spirits in the trees? In LA, you'll find little candles and flowers on certain street corners everywhere on the Eastside because of drive bys. Are there ganstas in Bombay, too?
Bombay taxi cabs are these cool old Fiats- and taxi cab drivers adorn their cars in ways we never would. Check out these little pasties hanging from the bumper- cool or what? I need some of these for my car. Also, the mudflaps were amazing. Flowers and deities would adorn them, we all need some of these. Don't even get me started about the truck drivers! Opium and hookers- boys after my own heart! Crazy kids.
I also just want to say that I usually miss out on the big picture when I take pics and travel- and just get some silly details. Hope you enjoy.
