Bombay Local

*In Bombay, the train spits you out when it tires of you. One moment I am 20 people away from the door at a station where the train will stop for less than 90 seconds, and the next moment the crowd has somehow made a way for every single person to exit. I always have to stop, look back and watch the train pull away from the station to convince myself that, yes, I actually made it out the door to the platform. In Bombay, every day, every act is a minor miracle.

*Haven't upated my blog for ages. Intially because I was lazy and now because I have very limited access and time for things such as blogging. Which fact of course explains why I would now use my limited to update.

Second attempt at leaving a comment. Life in Mumbai seems tough...may you should think of yourself as a potato in a half-open sack when you get on a train...
