Jet leg seems to be kicking in, both Nita and I could not sleep past 4-5am, no problems more an early start but not really a benefit as things did not start till at least 10am!

We were done by 9am, now what – had another hour to kill, decided to head to JW Marriott and waste some time there.
Took an Auto to JW, always fun riding the auto, and experiencing first hand the driving expertise required to navigate the kaos that is occurring on the roads daily.
Roam about a bit, and then it was time to head out. Another auto and next stop was the Santacruz area for shopping ( cnr of Station Rd & SV Road).
We had planned to visit a few stores and see what was on offer, that remained just a plan!! – the first shop we entered, did not exit the place till around 5 hours later. During that time we had numerous teas, the best grilled sandwiches and more teas….and of course some shopping!
It was around 3pm when we got out of that place. Next it was Seasons, which truly we did not like – very commercialised and no personalised service. Out of there and then into Friendship. Headed to the top level to see Chanya Choli and there we ran into Dilesh and family. A noisy reunion which lasted a bit, Nita and Dimple Bhabhi seemed to have a lot to catchup on ;).
It was then back to more shopping. Another round of grilled Sandwiches and more tea – love this stuff !!
Called off shopping around 7:30 and then headed back, for dinner we decided to head to the Italian restaurant in Marriott (Mezo Mezo), this place was recommended by Doc from his recent visit.
Was a good choice and a much needed break. Food was great but we were super tired to really enjoy the ambience and service.
Headed back to Novotel and hit the bed soon after.
