Irla, Vile Parle - Mumbai

The return flight will depart at night, so will be free for the whole day time. Since nothing to do in the hotel, so i followed my colleagues to a place called Irla, which is at Vile Parle to do some shopping and sight-seeing in order to kill the time. Nothing much special about Vile Parle, just a place where got shopping mall and road side stalls to offer something for you to buy, that's it.
Street view, congested and noisy
Auto rickshaw or "du du", is it same as Thailand?
Close shop for afternoon nap?
Fruits stall
Tailor by the road side, alteration can be made within few minutes!
I think fish will die if live in this river. :p
Alphonso mangoes that i bought, very sweet. Only 8 USD per dozen, cheap ho?

Am sure you know why Taj Mahal was built. Know how the queen died in her young age?

chris: i'm sure you have a chance to go, seeing that you are working in the "flying" line.. hehe

maxk: yes of course, have heard about it.. furthermore, my driver actually told me about the story - they are always very proud of the Taj Mahal..

Heard that the king loved the queen so much and they had sex too often resulting the queen giving birth too frequent and died of exhaustion. Is this a joke? :P
