Today we took a day off from our work schedule to do some tourism of the business and commercial districts of the city. Erin Binder of the Acara challenge joined us today for her first day in India. After seeing the Gateway of India, we were met by U of MN Acara Challenge participant, and Mumbai resident Neel Kulkarni. Neel took us around the various sites of Mumbai from the beach where we sampled Indian cool treats to the sites of the terrorist attacks at the Taj and Oberoi Trident hotels. We also took in a national art gallery, visited the beautiful Victoria Terminal (VT) train station, and stopped for a photo opportunity outside the Bombay Municipal Cooperation Building. We finished up the day by doing some gift shopping at the Bombay Store, had a nice iced coffee drink at Coffee Day, and took a fascinating train ride home through the city.
