    Back to Mumbai

    February 18, 2019 in India ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Up early again, for the last time! Uber to the station and hopped on the train ahead of the typical 6am departure time. Not much to report from the train really, as it was just a repeat of the journey from a few days prior, except going in reverse!

    Since we were staying in a different part of Mumbai for our last stay (up north, near the airport), we decided to get out at a different station to what was on our ticket, and then make our way to the hostel from there. Another Uber, though this one was quite long as the traffic was fairly heavy. Still only a few dollars though which is nice - we'll definitely miss this.

    The hostel is fairly nice, we have a private room and the staff are quite friendly. Didn't really do anything for the afternoon other than chill out in the common room and in our room too. There was a kitchen on site so we just ate food from there, though we were a bit limited since we didn't have much cash left and weren't super inclined to head out and get more, given we're leaving soon and can't take rupees out of the country.

    Arrived in Mumbai

    January 9, 2017 in India ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    After a 14 hour flight I arrived in Mumbai for my week long business trip. The flight was great, I had a whole row of seats to myself so I could actually stretch out and sleep for 7 hours flat on my back.

    Going through immigration and checking into the hotel put such a smile on my face. Every time someone sees my passport, they give me this look, smile and say the words: Ahhh, Jacques Kallis! You've got to love how passionate these people are about their cricket.

    I eventually fell asleep at around 2:00am but was wide awake again at 5:30am. The time difference with NY is 10.5 hours so the jet lag is quite something. Instead of tossing and turning in bed, I decided to hit the gym and do a 40 min, 8k run on the treadmill. After that I went for a nice healthy brekkie before it's off to the office.
