riding in taxis I




The majority of taxis in Mumbai are black and yellow. The classic model is based on a 1950s Fiat and is the one that one sees the most. In addition, there is a more modern black and yellow version, as well as the blue "cool cab" with air conditioning. I prefer the classic 1950s style. Although these ones often are a bit bumpier, have outdated meters which requires paying close attention to the price and worn out door handles, they have the best fabric. The material may be cheap, but the patterns are rich and they often distract me from watching what is outside of the window.

The best part of traveling - other than eating, of course - is coming to notice new details. Through guide books one can easily become familiar with a city's most famous monuments and sites; however, it is only through physical experience that one meets a city's most memorable quirks.
