India Day 3 - Drupal Tour 2016

By Eduardo García ● CTO | February 17th, 2016

I have to recognise I have Jet Lag issues; I can’t sleep more than 4 hours in a row. But this the most significant time difference I have travelled before in my life, so I expect in a week, or so my circadian rhythm gets used to the change.

As a result, today I get up a little late, so I decided to visit temples, the first one was the Siddhivinayak Temple, the template was so crowded with queue about 200 meters, but at least, the line moves faster, so the wait was about 10 minutes. After passing the “security control”, I have to remove my shoes, and everybody was offering flowers to their god, and I saw there is something related to coconut water that I can’t understand. Sadly pictures weren’t allowed.

shree temple

In general, a quick visit, and excellent if you want to try to live the experience of an Indian temple.

Indian street After finish this temple I walk around two hours with a real destination, I want to explore to see how looks the real Mumbai and to find a place to take a lunch. I have to say Mumbai is indeed a city of contrast. On one hand, you can see a lot of small informal business and people almost living in streets and on the other side of the same road, a vast complex of building for offices of people working for multinationals companies or hotel lies Four Season in the middle of that neighbourhoods.

Almost in front of the Four Seasons hotel, there is a tiny restaurant where I order Fish and tomato soup. Because, in my mind, I have the idea how a Tomato soup could be spicy, and I didn’t say “no spice please”, and guest what the did it the spiciest tomato soup I tried in my life and I couldn't handle.

Anyhow, I continue my route to visit the Haji Ali Dargah, and I have to say that doesn’t look like pictures, the place is running down.

Returning home, I got notified by Ani that there is a pre-party meet up at Rude Lounge were we met with [Dasjo]((http://dasjo.at), klausinho, Rachit gupta and others Drupal that I don’t have contact, shame on me. Good food, good place and nice talk the perfect combination to close a day.

In a few hours my wife Yersika is about the take a flight to the USA, and after a few days we will reunite in Singapore, have a good fly, honey.
