Mumbai in 36 hours

In Permanent dream state you walk through life asleep.

Victoria terminus, Taxis, Buses, Slums, Mumbai beach, Glory mornings with Bath and Shaving, Street and Markets, Magic and Legends. All that energy combined in expression of short and sleepless visit to Mumbai, January 2012.

Quick off the mark

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus as a starting pont.

Landing in the middle of the night with very few clues where to start. First place to visit was busy Victoria Station (Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus) and neighboroughing streets.

Scene was changing fast from sleeping bodies all around the train station and cleaning the streets, collecting the trash and making a fire of it, to taking a shower and shaving with the first morning sun.

Hitting the Streets

And the streets hitting back.

Endless walking on the busy streets of Mumbai, from known but already forgotten names of the places to unknown places to an ordinary tourist. Final destination - Mumbai beach at the and of the long day.
