Kingfisher airline 5 etoiles baby :)

After 9 (long) hours in the plane and some taste of the indian cuisine, we arrived in Mumbai but couldn't see much, the air was so thick due to the pollution that we couldn't see at more than 500 meters. We however got a glimpse of the slums, one doesn't need a picture to imagine the sad scene...
Apres 9 (longues) heures passees dans l'avion et un avant-gout de la cuisine indienne, nous sommes arrives a Bombay; mais nous n'avons pas pu voir grand chose car la pollution transforme l'air en puree de pois: impossible de voir a plus de 500 metres. Nous avons cependant eu un apercu des bidonvilles et pas la peine de photos pour imaginer la tristesse de cette scene...

We waited a few hours in the the airport and got our second flight to Dabolim (Goa)...
Nous avons attendu quelques heures dans l'aeroport et pris notre second vol en direction de Dabolim (Goa)...
