Our Flat in Bandra

Deb and I have finally, moved out of the hotel and into our flat.
The flat is nice, but my definition of nice has already begun to morph towards India standards.  It's 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, on the 11th floor (its the entire floor) 1 block from the Arabian Sea.  There are views of the sea from every room.  It has elaborate granite floors thru-out, the bathroom walls are also granite. All the furniture is hand made with wonderful wood work and elaborate doors (labor is obviously very cheap), but once you move from aesthetics to functionality the quality rapidly drops off. 
The following photo is taken from our living room with the tide out.

We have two parks within a block and a half of our flat.  The following photo is looking south from the furthest of the two Parks (Jogger's Park).

And the next photo is looking north from Jogger's Park to the Juhu neighborhood.

And this is a photo of Grace and Madelyn playing at that Park.

Here's a photo of our building from Jogger's Park.  Our flat is the third from the top in the center building.

The other park is pretty much just across the street from us.  This is the sign welcoming you to that park.

And this is of the granddaughters playing at that park.
