The hotel we’re staying at with ‘Mumbai’ written in Hindi on the billboard

I posted around two months ago claiming D and I were leaving to India in 2 weeks well 2 weeks turned into 2 months. We finally decided to leave tomorrow, we’re really excited! I’m taking my camera with me which should turn out to be interesting. We’re gonna be there for 4 days and 3 nights, which should be enough to run around and get everything we need. The name of the hotel is The Taj Mahal Palace and Tower I heard it is one of the cleanest in Bombay, I wouldn’t stay anywhere until I’ve read ALL the reviews on Trip Advisor.

R, D and S were explaining to me how dirty it is and that’s the only thing I’m scared of… I’m going to the co-op tonight to pick up about a litre of hand-sanatizer and detol wipes. I’m dead serious.

I’m looking forward to meeting R’s family and friends since we hear so much about them but I’ve never met her Indian family only the Kuwaiti ones.

I can’t wait to eat dosa and drink gola!!

Where can I find out what vaccines to take before I go? I searched online but I get different answers. Does anyone know what to take from personal experience? And where do I go get them?

    Im sorry but its a hell of wrong time to travel to ‘bombay’ ( mumbai bleh) cause its raining cats and dogs right now and Bombay is the worst place to be when it rains.. Im not sure about the vaccines but watch out for those mosquito’s .. make sure that there is ‘mosquito guard in your room.. Taj is one of the finest places to stay i guess… but the sea opposite gonna stink for sure..

    anyways good luck … and oh yeah ! watch out for the swindlers.. Stay safe.
