Bombay Mix

From Ranthabhore we got yet another train down to the metropolis of Mumbai, where we had to wait for a day until our next train. We spent most of it bumming around the city doing touristy things.

JP sampling the local cuisine

Me blending in with the locals at the famous "Gateway of India"

JP getting blessed by some bloke claiming to be a holy man

The same bloke then blessed me (how kind of him).
Needless to say, that dot thing that he put on my forehead (I think they call them tikkas over there) got rubbed off straight away, i'm all for embracing the culture and all that, but walking round with that thing on would just have been taking the piss.

And then we headed down to the beaches of Goa, reeeaaayyy!!
