Please disregard the flattering comments that keep turning up together with links to other sites. The first one fooled me for a second but they are now quite obviously fake.

Not much news other than that. I'm in London and hoping I find a job very soon, if only so I can get out of this internet cafe where the entire day's music comprises one Mariah song and one Craig David song played alternately. I don't mind 'We Belong Together' but 'Honey, honey, hug me, hug me, blah, blah, blah' is driving me insane. Those two are interrupted only occasionally by Tracy Chapman, quite appropriate for the unemployed.

Aiyaa, Craig has started again :( Must find work...

After my last post, we shifted to Palolem in South Goa. It was a pretty touristy beach but it was much more idyllic. This was the view from our hotel restaurant where I spent hours reading and drinking lime sodas.

It's now my last full day in Mumbai and I'm trying to fit as much in as possible. I'm looking forward to my imminent reincarnation in London but I'm going to miss India, particularly Mumbai.

Since there is a limited amount I can eat in the next thirty hours I'm planning meals carefully. I've spent about a couple of hours already in the hairdresser when a haircut turned into a head massage and then a face massage and then a facial. All for about a pound and a half!

I'll head to Marine Drive soon to catch another sunset over the sea. I've seen several now and it's still a novelty.
