It's 8,30pm on my first day in Incredible India. I spent most of today unpacking, napping and getting to grips with where I'm staying - a beautiful neighbourhood in Mumbai called Bandra. I took a taxi out to the Sofitel Hotel to have lunch with a Twitter friend, Hanneli, and ended up breaking every single bit of advice I'd received about eating in India in one sitting. I ate meat, I ate uncooked vegetables and I had a drink with ice in. So if you don't hear from me again, you'll know why.
So far all I can really say is that India is everything and nothing that I expected it to be. Landing at the airport, we were taxying past a large slum when I noticed several men, not 2m apart from each other, squatting on a heap of trash and "emptying their bowels" as Shantaram's Prabaker would say. Welcome to India!
I quickly made this video on videofyme, which I'm going to Ty and do more of along the way. Right now I am exhausted and I've got a whole big Mumbai to discover tomorrow. Follow me own Twitter and Instagram to see more from India.
