Mumbai in Fast Forward

My visit to Mumbai is a bit of a blur. I don’t know if it’s because India is already the 37th country I’m visiting this year or because of the dizzying speed at which I’m hopping from city to city—or the sensory overload that India tends to trigger with its infinite crowds and its hectic […]
