…I went on a Bombay City Tour, for the princely sum of Rs25.
As part of my Major Trip Down Memory Lane Because I Am Getting Old, I have been leafing through old albums and scrapbooks.
For the record, I was a great scrapbook-er at one time, carefully pasting in receipts and postcards and hotel brochures. It didn’t last, of course, like so many good ideas, but I sure wish it had, because digging through my old India memories, I’d never have remembered that I spent all of Rs25 to be guided around Bombay.
I would’ve been collected at 2.30pm, since I was staying at the glorious Taj Mahal Hotel, on my first ever visit to India.
As part of my tour, I definitely remember visiting the Taraporewala Aquarium – and, let’s be frank – being totally underwhelmed by it…just in case you think that my current wave of nostalgia is colouring all my memories 🙂
PS – out of in interest, can anyone tell me:
a) what 1983’s Rs 25 would equate to today?
b) how much does a Mumbai City Tour cost today?
