Mumbai and Onwards

Mumbai slumsHappy Easter to all! I am so out-of-sorts with my timing here that I almost forgot it was Easter…yikes! I am a bit sad to miss out on Easter crafting, egg dying and Sunday mass with the family…but somehow, I will live!Slums in the shadows of MumbaiAnyway, it has been a whirlwind couple of days here…from the mountains of Shimla to the sweltering streets of Mumbai, and now coming down to rest in Udaipur. Like so much of India, Mumbai is a city of great contrast. The skyline seems to rise out of the slums.
