As usual our trip got off to a bit of a rough start. Our flight was supposed to leave at 10:45 pm, we were actually on the plane, had even left the gate, but then went back to the gate and sat on the plane for about 2 1/2 hours while they tried to fix the navigation system. Then we all had to get off the plane and wait back inside the airport where we were told a couple hours later that they couldn't fix it and the flight was cancelled. Apparently only one plane was available that night, in the end though I really didn't want to get on the one that didn't have a navigation system. So they bused us to some hotel in the middle of nowhere so that we "could get a good sleep and be refreshed in the morning." Personally after those two hours of sleep I did not feel very refreshed. When we got up we were told they still weren't sure if there would be a flight but that maybe we would be leaving at 10am. Luckily we did but we weren't very happy about the fact that we lost a whole day of our 4 day vacation. As soon as we got off the plane in Mumbai though everything went very smoothly. We had a great time with our friends, Joye and Prashant, and we were very lucky to be able to stay with Prashant's family and have wonderful home cooked meals. It was great to just catch up with our friends and do lots of shopping. For once I didn't actually take too many pictures but there will be a few I will put up soon.
