We've arrived ....

...  the flight was really good; actually surprising comfortable despite being in "cattle" class!  The cabin crew were really polite and helpful, and the food wasn't half bad.  And I was able to watch a couple of films on route - The King's Speech - I can see why it won lots of Oscars, and Harry Potter - which was really good fun, but I missed the very end as we were coming into land at Mumbai!!  Oh well, I'll have to catch up with that later.

Jonathan met us at the airport and the journey back to the hotel was something else!!  I think traffic signals, road lanes and road courtesy are all entirely optional!  I sat in the front seat and ended up closing my eyes several times!!  The ITC Grand Central is absolutely magnificent.  I'll take some photos tomorrow and share them - very, very posh with lots of marble and mirrors and, more importantly, air conditioning!!!!  We're on the 20th floor so the views are quite amazing.  Our room is large and airy for one, but a little cosy for three - but we'll cope.

And that's all for now, as I need to unpack our suitcases and shake out the creases!!  It's 2.40pm Mumbai time and very hot, so we're going to have a quite afternoon and go out this evening.  It's so exciting!!
