Mumbai



On Sunday January 17th, we made our journey to Mumbai. We left Spicer Memorial College (where Kent lived as a child) at 7:30 AM and loaded on the bus. Traveling from Pune to Mumbai (AKA Bombay) was beautiful, especially travel down the "Ghats." This was the edge of a plateu that just dropped down with cliffs everywhere, it was amazing.



Once we got to Mumbai, we stopped at the Hard Rock Cafe! The service was really slow, but it was fun to look at all of the merchandise and eat beaf (only time on this trip so far)! Probably the most entertaining moment was Kent getting up and dancing for a good minute while we all all just starred with our jaws dropped with shock and laughter. After the Hard Rock Cafe we went over to the Gateway to India and the Taj Hotel.

The Taj Hotel was still being repaired from the terrorist attack that happpened a little over a year ago. The Gateway to India was masssive and imposing! We then made our way to the Train Station and started our journey to Dehli. What an amazing trip this is with all of the amazing sights we are blessed to see! Please continue to keep us in your prayers, and priase God for our safety so far.
