On and on and on: Mumbai

One week was definitely too short for Bangkok, and next time I come in winter when the temperatures are lower…

Off to Mumbai today, where the temperature reached 36 degrees today… Here are the fight details:

Flight 32 to Mumbai

Date: 12/11/2014
Code: TG317 from BKK to BOM
Airline: Thai Airways
Plane: Boeing 777-200
Distance flown: 1885 Miles
Duration: 3h45

The flight was great, as always with Thai. Super service, the Lounge really great.

Somehow they think I have Gold status, even though I only have Silver, which got me the Lounge access and a seat at the emergency exit with more legroom. Nice treat.

Immigration was smooth too, and the hotel driver was waiting outside already.

First impression from Mumbai at night: huge. Chaotic traffic. Lanes don’t exist. Lots of motor cycles, mostly no helmets, sometimes four people on one.

Permanent honking, not as a sort of expression of annoyance like in the West, but a kind of gentle warning: hey, I’m coming up on your left, so watch out a bit…

Now I’m off to bed, I’m 1.5 hours behind my Thai time (India has this weird half-hour time jump…)
