Parks in South Mumbai

I went into work on Sunday.  It was the day before school opened for new students and I wanted to put up displays in the iCommons areas.  Nancy, another new teacher, was also there in her learning pod and we decided it would be nice to go out afterwards.

We drove down to South Mumbai.  The first park we walked round was the Kamala Nehru park, which is located at the top of Mumbai's Malabar Hill.  It's named after the wife of India's first Prime Minister.  Nancy, Tim and I walked around the park.  It was a nice, open, green space and was surrounded by interesting buildings such as the Ambani building and something on the top of an apartment block that looked like a Greek temple.

We crossed the road and went to the Hanging Gardens, on the other side. These are terraced gardens providing a great view over the Arabian Sea, Chowpatty Beach and Marine Drive, which at night is called the Queen's Necklace as the lights resemble a string of pearls.

After this Nancy, Tim and myself went out for a meal at the Salt Water Cafe in Bandra.  It's possible to become a member of this cafe which give you points towards goodies and a 2 for 1 offer on drinks in the early evenings.  We joined.
