Day 1: Mumbai – Jamnagar

Right at the start of the journey in Vienna I met the first member of my team in person – Gica who was travelling from Brno and taking the same flights. In Zurich we were supposed to meet also Katrin traveling from Stuttgart but we unfortunately met only when we got out of the plane in Mumbai. The flight from Zurich to Mumbai was fine, watched a movie ( Olympus has fallen πŸ™‚ ) and slept almost the whole time. Before we entered Indian air space,we flew through Afganistan and Pakistan where I thought it was not allowed to enter the air space. But athe beautiful sunset was worth of it.

In Mumbai we changed the money and not surprisingly, MG is everywhere.

Arriving in Mumbai at 11pm it was still very hot and humid outside. We were already expexted and taxi took us to the hotel. The traffic in Mumbai is incredible…totally chaotic. There were no accidents in the streets even though you think you are going to crash to a bus from one side or a rickshaw driving in front of you. There are no lanes and everyone is driving towards the free space on the road. So full respect for the local drivers. Everything works somehow fine untill the cows appear on the road. There were 5 or six cows in front of us and just had to wait untill the went aside and we were good to go on to the hotel.

In the morning the next day we finally met the whole team and had some good time at breakfast together. Starting to move to the national airport for the flight to Jamnagar. Drive with a taxi was, ehm…as expected…:D, the only difference was that I was sitting in the front seat and saw everything what was happening on the road.

The airport was ok and we had time to rest and to have a coffee with the team.

The only issue seemed to be checking the departure time πŸ™‚
