Mumbai Beach Food

BM # 16   Day 6

 Today I shall take you guys to Mumbai beach. Juhu Beach. I just close my eyes and I am there.The lovely sight of the sun descending, with tints of red and orange…the sky looks breathtaking!...a little later lights and bulbs lit up this bubbly place and one can hear the giggling and screaming children.The splashing of waves gets lost with all the hustle and bustle..until one goes near the water.Merry go rounds…horse carts ..it all looks so very filmy…one can spot courting couples, newly wedded couples……a place for all.This is a very special beach where I was proposed…no wonder I love this place.

The beach is no longer clean…so you cant actually wade in the water,but..we can always enjoy the lovely food stalls here.They are a treat selling food from all over the world.The Mumbai food surely dominates..ah the sev puri…bhel puri…..pav bhaji..well today I have tried to get some of this Mumbai food for you. Hope you guys enjoy it.
