Day 1: Mumbai
After 14 hours in the air we were very happy to meet our super friendly guides, Krishna and Carlos. Once we settled down at the hotel and played some fun games in the garden across the street, we headed off to dinner. After walking up an insane number of stairs, we arrived at the gorgeous rooftop restaurant where we had our first delicious meal of many - and used no silverware, only our hands! After a good night’s rest, we were all able to really enjoy our first full day in India. In an odd way, Mumbai is like home. Crowded roads, tourist shops, and lots of construction, although it is much more colorful! With the helpful guidance of Krishna, we visited Gandhi’s house and fed some beautiful cows at a sanctuary to honor the sacred animals. After a long day on the busy streets of Mumbai, we were treated to another delicious meal and some refreshing ice cream. We are all having such a fun time taking in all the new experiences and spicy food, and we are very excited for the rest of our trip!
