    Aka, Bombay; the name was changed about 20 years ago. It is a large, vibrant diverse city in India.
    First up is the Victoria Terminus, an early railroad station. Next is the Marine Boulevard, essentially the malecón of Mumbai. Next is worship in the Stone Temple, a Hare Krishna temple. Next, buried in the trees, is the Tower of Silence. This is a Parsi worship space where in that tradition the dead are place for the vultures. 5th is a look at one of the slums which are very different from what we see as slums. People who make it big who grew up here often choose to stay, as the environment is safe, the people are happy, etc. So now it is expensive the buy a place to live. Last is an open air laundry in the slum.Read more
