1 & a Half day in Mumbai - Final

I am going to finish this fast because I can't wait to get on to the next destination.

I woke up at 7am and relax on the couch until Dheepa woke up.

Shops are not open until 10am so we watched a movie on her laptop - The Road to Sangam, and had breakfast.

And then we get ready and went out to find our guy who promised to take us to the tailor.

And then we realised something is dodgy because he said he will take me and Dheepa can stay. Dheepa insist that she will not leave me alone.

We were at the tailor and it was close (for some strange reason), so we walked around a bit and found a tailor.

The blouse was ready to be picked up at 2pm

We went to those jewelry shop to pick up some accessories to go with the saree. Oh my God these men are fast in picking the right size and the right colour. I ended up with many colourful bangles at INR 35.

I also picked up some pretty ornamental Bindee. The little jewel Indian girl stick on their forehead.

And then we went to the facial parlor to do all the girlie staff like threading, waxing, manicure and pedicure.

I had a latte at Cafe Coffee Day.

And then we rushed back and had lunch at High Point - Dosa and Cheeku (ciku) shake.

And then we went to pick up the blouse. It was perfect, beautifully stitched.

And then we went home to get ready to leave for Mumbai domestic airport to meet Anju and the convoy.

After many phone calls and traffic jam and people selling strawberries and funny haha later, we arrived at the Domestic airport.

It was a very nice airport.

And I forgot how tall Anju was.

We bid farewell with Dheepa, hopped on the van and the 9 hours journey to Kolhapur begun.

It was 6:30pm.
