Think you had a busy Saturday? This was the scene at the supermarket near my hotel in Mumbai today – shoppers patiently queueing outside (and it was a long, long line…) for their turn to enter the store, with the entrance controlled by a security guard.
And below, Dhobi Ghat, the famous outdoor laundry, where supplies from Mumbai’s hotels and hospitals are hand-washed by workers in large concrete wash pens under the hot Mumbai sun.
I feel an urge to send a loving postcard to my local Supervalu in Greystones – not to mention my washing machine. There’s nothing like an afternoon spent wandering the streets of Mumbai to make you count your blessings.
