Mumbai walk

Walking is boring? Best way to get to your destination fast is to get a transport? You are not completely wrong but if we followed this advise Mumbai would have been just a row of buildings.

A coolie Rushing to get to the train @ CST Mumbai

When we got out of the Chatrapati Shivaji terminal the weather made us walk to gateway of India. Though i have to admit our frugality had a lot to do with it but you see a lot of things when on road.
Not many were about and the only vehicles that passed us were taxis ferrying people to the train station. Colonial influence on Mumbai speaks out from the buildings along the route from CSTM to Gateway of India. super hungry we walked along looking for some place to eat at 6:30 in the morning but found nothing instead we found a treasure of beautifully detailed buildings.

White town hall against the morning sky is my favorite sight along the street. Gateway of India was perfect culmination of the walk.
