Around The World in 66 Days

2/24/2013: Our last visit before heading back to the Western World was Mumbai. We had a 24 hour stop in Mumbai, so we could not see much, so we decided on the Sanjay Ghandi National Park to the north of the city. We walked around the ruins before taking the train into the city.
