Mumbai, the Gateway of the British rule and a huge metropolis of today. I cannot remember a place more dense, busy and vibrant as this. It's a modern city with with a spicy twist. The diversity astounding and the pace breathtaking. At the Gateway of India, the seafront monument behind the Taj hotel people gather for a photo-op, a chat and a snack. Families, tourists and everybody else. I somehow feel like all the above at the same time.
