He is in LOVE with her

Me:          How is life in Muumbai
Mustafa:  Unbelievable
                 Extraordinary, amazing, awesome , wonderful, perfect.
Me:          Wow
                 All this coming from the guy who wanted to hop on the next plane out of Mumbai
Mustafa:  Unthinkable
Me:          How have you been?
Mustafa: Cool
                 Very cool
                 Super excellent

Except you read the WELCOME TO INDIA IV: MUMBAI (EXPECTATION SETTING) post, will you understand my joy.

From hatred to love, I wrote in that post that I hope and pray he falls in love with Mumbai.
I am so glad, he has finally opened his heart to the beauty of Mumbai.
Not that things have changed in Mumbai,
not that the way of life in Mumbai is different.
But he has decided to look beyond the dirt, the poverty and the fast life and enjoy Mumbai.

I will be the spending my weekend in Mumbai with friends and this time, I intend to explore the city. The Gateway of India and the Juhu beach are the must see of Mumbai according to an Indian Colleague.

This time around, I hope to also explore the beauty of Mumbai and also fall in love with her just like Mustafa.

  1. Laura, this is a beautiful post, so full of warm, sensitivity. I've been in your young shoes (visited India when I was your age) and followed my grandmother's advice to push myself, however tired, to experience and see as much as possible. These years and energy are fleeting. It warms my heart that you're making the most of this fabulous opportunity. Enjoy!

    I've never been to India before. Would sure like to visit --- especially Mumbai. The way you speak of it, I am confident I would love it!


  5. Good to know you are loving the city. This one that you are just exploring and exploring. You seem to make me regret not visiting India when I was in Asia. I just don't have that exploration and tourism spirit. haha
