Travel in Mumbai
• Travel to Bombay
Flew in for 3 days in Mumbai, or Bombay, as someone more like it (I like Bombay, Lebedev bad influence). 3 days in this city a little, I know, but more than I have not yet, so just went to look around. Bombay amazing: the crowds, the crazy traffic on the streets, amazing architecture, slums, palaces and amazingly kind and friendly people. Shoot here - it is a pleasure.
Actually, I was expecting the worst from Bombay. In fact, everything turned out to be much cleaner and more prosperous. Bombay slums compared to the Bangladeshi - just the elite areas.
The town is built up and grows. Skyscrapers appear in place of the former slum. Something like China.
In the city center are lots of British colonial architecture.
Most of the buildings, unfortunately, looks scruffy)
All sell everything.
He joined the Muslim Quarter
dear, everything I love.
move around the city better at fashion trains.
Some hostel ... On the top shelf suspiciously many legs!
The bus stop is not just park the car and parked in 2 rows!
And here is the bus. Travel costs 8 rubles (depending on the distance)
Public transport in Mumbai in 1876 appeared. First there were the trams, and the first bus there appeared only fifty years later. Initially regarded as buses transport the privileged classes: one trip cost three times more expensive than the tram. However, in the first year total passenger traffic amounted to 600 thousand people, and the next - almost four million. Today the bus system carries 3.3 million people daily.
In 1937, we have commissioned a double-decker buses in Bombay. Modern versions, and local production of cotton material, go here and still. No worse than some of London!
In 1926, Bombay was only 24 buses, now there are 3600. Each bus is set on three cameras and special phones as a precaution after two terrorist attacks in 2002 and 2003.
On the roads are full of chaos. If there is no regulator, then all go as they please, look at the traffic lights.
A ride on the train.
They carry 7.5 million people a day and 2.64 billion a year, is the largest passenger traffic in the world. It is also the oldest railway system in Asia, the first line was built by the British in 1853.
Bombay trains - one of the busiest in the world. In peak hours can welcome 1,700 people from nine train cars can nabitsya up to 4500 passengers, you end up with 14-16 man standing on one square meter. Yet there are special wagons and whole trains, which can travel only to women.
In fact this is the train, second-class carriage. I'd like to take a ride on the train as it makes Lovygin, but no. We'll have to leave the train at the next time!
