I have been trying to make sure that our days are simple and unstressful. We are grateful to have these few days in Mumbai in a comfortable apartment where we can sleep in, if we need, and spend our mornings reading and writing. The bed is flat and sturdy, there's warm water in the shower, the temperature is warm, breezes from off the ocean, the food is aromatic, and the neighborhood is peaceful. Simple delights.
This morning as I was reading -- there are so many good books here by Indian authors I'm only just getting to know. At around seven am I heard the swish swish of a wood broom in the yard below. Two hours later I realised the swish swish was still going on and captured the grounds keeper in the video.
I got out this afternoon to walk and remember that we are in a city that is full of humanity always on the go. See other videos of street scenes.
Mumbai consists of multiple "villages". Today we hung out in Chimbai, a fishing village in Bandra, a sunburn of Mumbai
I will be traveling and visiting India, with my Father. Our primary destination in India is Ranchi, Jharkhand. We will also visit other towns and cities in that north-eastern region as well as other places in India.
