We did this on the 24th of Dec 2016 at 0830 hrs & our raconteur for the day was Omkar Salunkhe ... the walk took us a little more than 3 hrs & we loved every moment of it!
Old Bombay abounds in history ... while walking the perfect avenues & streets of Ballard Estate, we were like transported to a Victorian era almost 350 years old. This walk covers the northern part of old 'Fort' with the history of many iconic architecture including that of George Wittet. My wife & myself both being Architects could connect very well to this narration. Our 10 year old kid found the history fascinating ... especially the anecdotes which Omkar mentioned from time to time ... Catching Bombay - the maximum city which purportedly never sleeps - in its early morning hours ... with its deserted streets still covered in a thin veil of fog - offered an additional bonus of capturing some mesmeric cityscapes ... few of which I intend to paint sometime:)
Thanks to Raconteur for a lovely pre-Christmas time!
