Goodness, this blogging stuff takes time, but it is nice to keep a record. The screen on my iPod malfunctions and WordPress autocorrects with sometimes embarrassing words and I don’t always notice it.
Tomorrow is my last day at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel and I am sad! Sometimes a stay can be too long, but not here. I haven’t really even explored it yet!
Ringo Starr and John Lennon stayed here. This is the hotel where John and Yoko didn’t emerge from their room for five days!
Duke Ellington, my most beloved composer, stayed here!
And many others.
So photos are forthcoming.
The swelling on my feet and legs has gone down, but is still present.
This afternoon I will visit my company’s office here. That is pretty exciting,and I already have it in mind to talk shop and ask how my department can better serve our India office. I have a few of my own ideas of course!
Last night I got to meet my colleague and his family, and he was kind enough to bring Epson salts for my feet!
He has a lovely family and they have very generously invited me over for dinner tonight. So I will see another area of Mumbai.
6 a.m. – Rise and shine.
7 a.m. – Grab a quick bite and go to the Gateway of India and take photos of the birds.
8 a.m. – Swimming pool for the rest of the day!
So I drank the water I was served today and it wasn’t from a bottle. I was assured a few days ago that the Taj is very careful with their water and filters it, etc. So we shall see.
