Thanks to Abhishek, I have been doing my fair share of bus rides in Mumbai! Like last Sunday. He was up and about at 4:45 am since we had decided to go for a bus ride in the morning. It took some doing to keep him in bed for another hour. We finally left home shortly after 6:30 am, and went where he wanted to go. Four bus rides and two-and-a-half hours later, we finally reached back home.
Taking the bus around Mumbai always brings back memories of my childhood and school/college days. All travel was almost entirely by bus.The double decker buses were the norm on most routes. Going up and sitting right in the front to experience the view and the breeze was what I liked most. Now, most buses are single decker, and there are a lot more routes. 25 years on, a love for Mumbai’s buses has been rediscovered, courtesy Abhishek!
