Kala Ghoda Arts Festival

Every year the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival is held in Mumbai.  It's full of performers, artists and lots of places where you can buy interesting crafts.  Lex and I travelled down on the train - the first time we have ever been 1st Class in India - and what a difference!  We could get on without any fuss and we could find a seat, and best of all we didn't have to worry whether we'd be able to push through the crowds to get off at the right stop.

A variety of things were on sale:  home-made soaps, various fabric items, jewelry, paintings and so on. I really liked the brass and the colourful lampshades.  I did buy some things - but mostly to give as presents.

On the way to the festival we walked through Bombay University.  The buildings are beautiful and actually remind me of Cambridge.
