The setting moon and rising sun of Mumbai

The setting moon and rising sun of Mumbai

I've been in Mumbai a little over 24 hours. But it feels like I never left.

Even though I haven't been here for two years, my family has a way of making me feel like I've been here the whole time. I slide into their lives naturally, like the final piece to a puzzle.

The first 24 hours weren't that interesting. Didn't leave the house. But today, the plan is to go see my grandmother. I still can't get past the fact that my first solo trip in 2005 was primarily to see her due to some health issues(I was told she may not live much longer), yet almost 6 years(and 4 trips) later, she's still going strong. (PS - As I write this, I am glancing out the window at another awesome Mumbai sunrise - the kind my mom loved.)

More to come...
