Seeing a city from a high vantage point is a favorite activity of mine, so when I needed a break from the madness of Mumbai, I headed for the rooftop lounge at the Four Seasons. Being a budget-minded traveler (aka cheapskate), I took the train to the nearest stop, and then walked to the hotel. And I guarantee you: the usual clientele of the Four Seasons does not walk to the Four Seasons.

LOVE the photos, particularly the Night Market. Love the barbershop scenes – very entertaining, and Ken, you look great in both the before and after shots, go figure. The slum scenes are so typical of what little I know about the amazing country of India, and are so sad. We have our own contrasts in our country, of course, but in India everything seems over the top. Thanks once again for posting. Safe travels.

Really enjoyed your study in contrasts, but that haircut etc., oh my. You know me, I’m glad your hair grows fast!

Thanks, Maria! I want a Massage-o-tron of my very own. You just know it was built in 1958 and will last forever.
