Mumbai for a week

Have you ever read books and blogs and just came accross only negative things about a place that you don’t want to go there at all, this was the case for me.

To be honest never believe all they say go and find out for yourself, take risks and book that ticket.

India holds the biggest population in the world therefore the traffic will shock you that’s something you have to be prepared for .

I was fortunate to visit during the mansoon season, dark clouds, strong winds and humidity at the same time is the feeling of the mansoon

I’d recommend that you use an Uber because it’s extremely cheap and convenient from one place to another,the drivers might not speak English but you will arrive at your destination.

The streets of Mumbai will leave you amazed at the beautiful buildings well built and colourful,on the other hand just after the airport you are welcomed by the famous slums which will leave you in absolute shock at below the line poverty that still exists.

I was fortunate to stay in Hotel Trident later upgraded to Oberoi hotels my check in was super fast and professional I was blown away by this magnificent building with more than 3000 shops joined along side 3 malls very busy but you will be given absolutely attention.

Nameste you will here this more often,as tired as I was I just couldn’t rest because I was overwhelmed with excitement and the jet lag was taking over.

The service was great and it only got better through the night oh my this place was just worth every penny.

From top notch restaurants to exciting night clubs , and ofcourse the bikini was out there to play.

Considering that I’m a black women which made me exotic and very rare, so be prepared to be stated at because it shall not stop at anytime.

Remember to buy as many shawls as possible at the colaba market you will be spoiled for choice.

It was such a beautiful experience to wear this

My first Saree

David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage

I’d recommend you to visit this place on Sunday it’s open for only one hour strictly 11am to 12am,you will enjoy it as much as I did.

It’s well organized and you pay 500 shillings cash to view the Elephants.

You will be surprised at how many people turn up it’s magical, and carry a hat because it gets relatively sunny and a bottle of water.

Lastly you will see the Elephants and learn on why they are Orphans and why we should take our environmental issues seriously, furthermore you can adopt an Elephant of your choice and get a Certificate and monthly news letters at 50 dollars yearly .

See you there!

A day kissing A Giraffe in Giraffe Center In Karen Nairobi

Ever wondered where to visit when in Nairobi?

I’d recommend a visit to the Giraffe Center just 10 minutes away from the City Center.The Entrance price is 250 shillings for residence and 1500 shillings for non residence payable by mpesa or card payment strictly.

That gets you a tour guide who will take you through what goes on there and allows Questions and Answers.

There’s a restaurant within the center but they allow only card and mpesa transaction.

Lastly you will get to feed the giraffe with food pallets

Don’t worry you will be kissed back.

Brew Bistro Not Only The Brew But The Food

If you have found yourself in Brew Bistro,it’s not just a a night club.

Take the Menu and order some food you will be surprised at how delicious and filling it is.

The wine bar is great , Ambience way over the top, service is relatively good, and now they have a new brunch in Galleria Mall,

kindly pass by and enjoy tasteful meals and Smoothies to sooth your thirst in this hot weather.

The Carnivore Restaurant

If u want to try out different types of meat Carnivore Restaurant is the place to be especially on a Sunday afternoon

I’d recommend that you dress casually and be ready to eat,

You will get a menu showing a platter you can have with different prices affordable I must say.

In the platter the is crocodile, sausages, chicken wings, ostrich, potato wedges and ofcourse some steak
