Day 2: Bombay, India
We landed in Bombay and got home at about 5am. The first day in India we spend the whole day either sleeping or cleaning the house that had been closed for 3 years.
Here's a shot of a mosquito. These mosquitoes we're terrorising my sleep and I was bitten 13 times that night. Annoying!!!
