    What a wonderful morning! We saw the fish market, newspaper sorting, vegetable and fruits, flowers, all the action that keeps Mumbai moving. The best part is that it’s all done before breakfast! ADI was a fantastic tour guide with immense knowledge & an Aussie sense of humour!

    Despite the 5.15 start from my hotel, this proved to be a great way to see Mumbai. I got my best pictures of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Termius, formerly known as the Victoria Terminus, Bombay, and the life around the station. It was interesting to see the newspaper distribution
