Oh Mumbai, we wish we had more time with you. We love your colonial buildings, your pulsating energy, your friendly people and your scenic waterfront.
Alas, you were too much for these two backpackers. At Christmas time your prices soar and we could not afford to stay in India’s thriving city for more than 3 days.
How we would have loved to visit the Prince of Whales Museum, Gandhi’s museum and Elephant Island.
We searched for reasonable accommodation, and yet we could not find a thing. All places were booked as you are quite popular during the holidays.
We settled on a lovely hotel called The Residency in the Fort District. It was a luxury that we enjoyed.
3800 Rs ($87) got us a soft bed with duvet, television with HBO hot shower and concierge. We paid the 200 Rs for Wifi and stayed in bed all day long enjoying room service, air conditioning, talking with family on skype and the sheer luxury of staying inside all day long.

But what we were really excited to see was the sculpture of a whale skeleton that someone put together years ago.
