I just had a great rickshaw experience, and I wanted to write about it because I am so happy.
First, let me tell you one of the big reasons that I like the Bandra neighborhood in Mumbai. It is because Bandra is the closest neighborhood to downtown where rickshaws are still legal.
I like rickshaws more than taxis because rickshaws get more fresh air ventilation, they are much less expensive, and they can weave around traffic.
Monsoon season is in full effect here. So tonight it is pouring rain, and I walked out of the cafe and right into a waiting rickshaw. Then I directed the rickshaw right to the front door of the apartment, about 5km (3mi) away.
So, that's that. It felt good to finally get home on the first try.
