Another laid back day here in India. When my dad left for work, Brenda and I hit the park for some exercise. The park is a really beautiful venue for running and walking. Today was not quite as humid as the other day, so my run was a little easier. I also slowed my pace a little bit. It sure takes some getting used to, running in the heat and humidity. I should be ready for Illinois by the time I get back 🙂
Brenda and I spent the day relaxing while dad was at work. I sat on the balcony this afternoon. There was a nice breeze and it was fun to see all the kids playing in the park.
For dinner, we walked over to a restaurant called Out of the Blue. They have a nice menu of a wide variety of food. It was a nice dinner.
After dinner, we went to Haiko, which is a grocery store. I wish I was allowed to take pictures in there because it is crazy how crowded it is! But I love going to the grocery store. There are so many cool things to see, both Indian items and American items that are packaged differently. For instance, they had strawberry creme and orange creme Oreos. Neither one sounded appealing so I passed on both.
After that we strolled over to Haagen Dazs and grabbed some ice cream. I took some video of the traffic again. The traffic here never ceases to amaze me. There is so much of it and it’s always so haphazard (emphasis on HAZARD!) and so noisy with all the honking. Brenda was a bad ass, though, and just stepped out in front of a bus and crossed the street! Like a real resident of India 🙂
We are just over a week away from leaving for Dubai. I am enjoying my time relaxing here in Mumbai, though. As I’ve said, I really enjoy the atmosphere of the buzz of people and activity all the time.
