These are views from our hotel room. As you can see, the main building material is blue tarps.
The first photo shows a couple of columns that will support the train on Jeff's project.
If you look closely, you can see a black and white cow laying on the ground to the right of the blue tarped truck ( yes, the cars and trucks use the blue tarps also!). It disappears every day for a while and then comes back...it's not tied up or anything and I never see anyone interacting with it. I would like to follow it some day and see where it goes... it's not like there are any pastures around!
The third photo is also from our window and shows a new community of Powai off in the distance. We looked at apartments there and there were some nice ones but it also had alot of slums around too. I was most put off by the fact that there is a KFC of all things there! Yuck! That did it for me!
We are moving to an area called Bandra (West) and it is an established neighborhood that reminds me a little of the Hawthorne area with lots of little shops and restaurants...I will post photos after we move!
One thing I will miss about our stay here is the call to prayer that we hear several times a day from a nearby mosque...it's what wakes me up every morning about 5 am. The hotel staff and food have been good and it is kind of nice to just put our laundry in a bag every day and have it returned cleaned and pressed every evening. But, it's time to really start living in the community and we're looking forward to it!
