Life in Mumbai

I could write a long post today but all I want to do is share some pictures. We have been busy, way busy to notice that two weeks have gone by. It is nice to be back with my family here and also being the tourist.
One hting about being here, it never gets old. I am constantly surrounded by colors and textures. Here are some pictures I took in past few days.

Strawberries are in season and women here like wearing that color.

Yesterday on the train; women, perfect strangers to each other were wearing coordinated clothes. Pretty interesting, wouldn't you agree? Something my college friends and I used to do all the time!

Early morning of last weekend, we went to the beach. it was a perfect morning for some soccer for local peeps.

They reminded me of my kids. They all love going to the beach here and have a taste of fresh coconut water.


Mmm... Good!

There was a photography class going on too. I was part of this clan many years ago!

Childhood! Oh I love sibling-hood! Is that a word?

Nurseries on the Wheels are all over the town. Winter is wrapping up and temps are getting into 90s. I love occasional lazy afternoon naps here but have no time to catch a snooze. I am busy shopping for my son's wedding. Love visiting the sari shops. You may not be able to see as much color as I do when I go there but here is a picture.

And here is a picture with my favorite color!

Have a great week!


  1. Thank you for the morning treat. I can't imagine trying to pick a favorite in the sari shop. I think my favorite photo may be the women on the train, great colors.

  3. thank you for sharing pictures of Mumbai with us; love seeing all the colorful places. That fresh cocoanut water looks delish!! hugs, Julierose

  4. What a fantastic post. I love seeing the world through other people's eyes. My favorite color is yellow and it seems to be the color I see first when looking at the world. I would love to visit India. I love how the food at the market is displayed. So beautiful. With over 2' of snow on the ground at my house in Maine, it is so refreshing to see color in your world. Thank you for sharing.
