I’ve come to Bombay with my wife for her work. Fantastic to be in India again. In the past I spent a lot of time travelling here. I have been to Mumbai (Bombay) for both travel and work but can’t remember. Dharamsala would have been an interesting place to visit, a place that I can kind of remember. Shaking the stump of a leper because he had no hand. Watching the Dalai Lama drive past in a Mercedes when he lived there in exile.
I always thought India was an important country, so many people live here, more than 1.3 billion. Just so happy to be in India and resuming life like before, travelling. Some more memories have just come back. Once I traveled along the mother Ganga. Calling it mother Ganga I’m even speaking colloquially, the Ganges river. I stopped at villages by the river. ‘a shanty town’ Just the tip of the ice berg I hope.
