My first Indian meal, a dollar and yummie.
I am still in the middle of my initial culture shock (and jetlag), so more reports later! I’m hosting the pictures on Ballofdirt.com. The advantage over hosting them on my own server is that they have better upload tools, and I can upload the uncompressed versions there and they provide various optimized versions. I believe they also don’t mind linking straight to the images.
Internet cafes are about half a $ to 1$ an hour in Mumbai. Decent fast connections.
For my first 2 nights I took an ok and friendly hotel (recommended by Lonely Planet), it’s about 20$ a night. The bathroom is as follows, to give you an idea.
