Day two in Mumbai has been fairly eventful. We visited so many places around the city, I can barely remember their names. Although, I do remember for sure that we visited Bandra, Chembur and Kurla.
We went sightseeing into the city after lunch, only to stop before the Taj Hotel, mostly famous for the 26/11 attacks in 2008. I was told that the hotel had always been an icon of the country but the event in 2008 overshadowed it’s original flair.
In front of the Taj, stood the Gateway of India. It was built to mark the visit paid by King George V and Queen Mary in 1911. Apparently, it was the first structure travelers arriving in Mumbai by sea, could see and thus was named the Gateway of India.
It later became the spot where all important people were welcomed.
I’m fatigued by all the traveling and walking and shopping, and I’d like nothing better than crawl into my bed and sleep for twelve hours (!) straight.
