On the road again. Going places that I've never been. Seeing things that I may never see again. And I can't wait to get on the road again.
I am laughing from my car's backseat - where I have been stuck in the Mumbai traffic for some hours. And then Willie Nelson's On the road again fills the air. Perfect timing! Hilarious! Because yes, dear reader, I still spend a huge amount of my time in the car. Status quo since Driving Miss Daisy, in other words. I still sit there with my mouth half - open: taking in the scenery outside. I still try to be patient. I still try to think positive. Note my "try".. sometimes with success and sometimes without..
Being used to the Mumbai streets packed with people, rickshaws, cars, buses, people, cows, trucks, motorcycles and people again - imagine my shock when we discovered the new highway (going north -south - over Chembur) - and (hold on) : we are sometimes The.Only.Car.On.The.Road!! In Mumbai! I can still hardly believe it. But I am loving it. Here is the proof! See: Alone On The Road:
Oh. One more car!
The view from the new highway is also quite..something... Just have a look:
So, in company with this fellow......
.... I made it to where I was suppose to go: markets, lunch with a friend, and strawberry-shopping...
