Today I went sight seeing in South Bombay; catching the boat across to Elephanta Island.  I caught the little rickety train round to the entrance, and began my ascent up the many many steps to the top, where the view was stunning.  The Caves were impressive and the locals charged us double when purchasing drinks!  There were hundreds of monkeys and dogs roaming around, and people asking for money when I took their photo.  But overall it was a great day!
