NOT for the birds!

In the afternoons the Gateway of India is pretty crowded but in the mornings visitors are scarce, i watched this young girl chase pigeons for about 15 minutes (until I felt I had contracted Histoplamosis) until she gave up.

This monument in Mumbai, located near the Taj Mahal Hotel, is a great place to do some people watching or even catch a ferry to Elephanta Island. The actual gateway was to commemorate the arrival of their Majesties King George V and Queen Mary during a visit to India in 1911, the monument is still a national icon.

Any cab driver will know the Gateway of India, but be sure and bring your tout-stick because they will try and sell you everything.
