25th Jan – At Sea. Had better night, throat not so sore but coughing more. Feeling a little better though. Went up on deck and met Carol. Sunbathed for a few hours. Carol went to the cooking demonstration. It was on cooking curries
26th Jan – Mumbai. Feeling much better although still coughing. I went up on deck for a couple of hours. I went in the Terminal with Amanda to see what they had on sale there – not a lot. We then went back on the ship and I had to get ready to go out on a tour. I had fish & chips on deck first. My tour was at 1.15 pm. We went to the Gateway of India which is opposite the Taj Mahal Hotel – very crowded. It was a coach journey around Mumbai which was very interesting but would never go again. Very depressing sights i.e. lots of children begging etc. We ended up at the Mayfair Hotel where there were refreshments and a show of Indian dancing put on for us. It was very good although I did not have anything to eat or drink (on Amanda’s say-so!) Got back to the ship at 5 pm. I went up on deck for sailaway (with cocktails of course). It was a lovely atmosphere. I got ready for dinner and decided to go for a pre-dinner drink (mainly because I fancied the cheesy biscuits they give you with a drink in Raffles bar – I know what a pig!) After dinner I went to Carmens with Carol & Jeff for a couple of dances. It was very nice because the Indian waiters were allowed to wear their traditional costumes.
