I currently live in Shanghai, working as an English teacher. Exploring the scent ridden streets of Shanghai makes me smile and gasp all at the same time. There is so much to see and do here, I love this city. I love fashion, and I know this is going to sound strange, but I am taking my fashion cues from Gossip Girl at the moment. I’m just a woman who likes to travel and experience everything this amazing life has to offer. In fact, that’s my motto for this school year, “livin’ life”, because you never know what tomorrow brings.

    Just stumbled upon your post on Thorntree and checked in to see who is this firangi (thats what we Indians will call you white skinned guys :P) complaining about my city, Mumbai. First things first, an incident like that is definitely a turn off. Ideally Mumbai is the safest and coolest of the Indian cities for women but things happen. You have to let the city grow on you and you will know it better.
    Again the idea that people are always in a mad rush is true but they are running not because of a sense of desparation or fear but they are busy chasing their own dreams. You see, Mumbai is like NYC. People come determined to make it better and the city does not let the people down. Perhaps the fear is there ,still you will always see the strength of its solidarity in the hour when it is most needed and without fail. But that is not why I am writing in for…
    I was just going through your blog and found it very refreshing. It does not go into the technical stuff. You write it as you feel it and I think that is great! Its also about how you have kept the blog i.e. the layout and background etc. Simple. The Goa pics were real nice and the story of Penelope was hilarious. Keep writing and I will keep following. Bye.

      Thank you for the candid comment Deepak. I hope my post did not come off as too negative. I loved the city, and I have thought about it everyday since I have returned home. I just started reading a book set in Mumbai called Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts, and it really captures the feelings you described in your comment.

      Thanks for reading!

      Hi Emma!

      Of course! I need to add his contact to the blog post as well. Munna is the best guide ever! His mobile number is 9224939948. He parks near the Diplomat Hotel on Meri Weather Road in Colba, Mumbai. Have a great time, and tell Munna “hi” from us!
