India countdown

So it's about 10 days until we leave for our trip to India! That gives me butterflies in my stomach. Just such a far away travel. I thought I would share a few pictures I took on last year's trip. We are going to Kharghar, India which is a newer "city" about an hour drive from Mumbai(aka Bombay). It is located in "Navi Mumbai" which means New Mumbai, a newer built up area outside of Mumbai. Kharghar is a planned city, and while it looks very built up and filled, it is quiet, more spacious, newer, and cleaner than Mumbai. The first two pictures are from Kharghar, the last two are from Mumbai.
Kharghar, India (an area outside of Mumbai). Still a lot of construction going on.

Market area we shopped in, in Mumbai. Look at all those shoes. You can't really see in the picture but there was McDonald's right by there. McDonald's in India is very different, the only similar things are the french fries and sodas. Their sandwiches are different(and good in my opinion hehe). They have vegetarian sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, maybe fish. No beef burgers.

My husband put videos from Kharghar and videos from a local theme park on a blog a couple years ago, for people looking for more info about either place. You can go check it out if you want, it's pretty cool! Click Here
