A huge festival in town and the noise was incredible. The festival was Navratri which means nine nights, it honors the Mother Goddess-Divine Shakti. She destroys evil and grants boons to her children.
Here of pictures of the sea of humanity that walked by our apartment building on the way to the festival. It is estimated that 800,000 indians came to town for the festival and it turns out we live on the main entrance to town. They walked passed us at all hours of the day and night. Lots of music, loud speakers encouraging the pilgrims as they walked along.

We had a wonderful driver by the name of Robin, who worked for Only Friends. He spoke English and took Tim and I to see the various sites in Churchgate.
The Mosque is a beautiful site on a peninsula. The walk way was filled with people heading to and from the Mosque.
how clean everything was in Church Gate. Unlike
the rest of Mumbai there wasn't trash littering the park or the beach. I loved looking at the incredible buildings.
