The home of Bollywood and its now world-famous film industry, this is the glamour capital of India. Even more fascinating, however, are the aspects of daily life that constitute the real Mumbai – from the sublime to the mundane. The majority of Indians are Hindus, believing in a vast pantheon of deities. The most popular of these are visible everywhere, in large colorful temples, street corner shrines, shops, and on the dashboards of cars. And then there are the dhobi-wallahs with their laundry, and the tiffin-wallahs with their lunch delivery, both popular and seemingly anachronistic services, run with a razor sharp precision that the West might be hard pressed to duplicate.
This state-of-the-art port is a striking contrast to the wonders of antiquity you will find in Cairo. The city unfolds in layers, beginning with the Great Pyramids of Giza, resting mysterious and silent on the sands of time, and the wealth of antiquities in the Egyptian Museum, where many stories are told. The medieval Islamic city is full of monuments: mosques, elegant old houses, and the Citadel of Saladin, famous 12th century caliph and warrior. Here too is Khan al-Khalili, the giant bazaar enjoyed by today’s shoppers as it was by the 14th century traveling traders who first haggled here. Woven throughout are the modern city, and the lives of its 17 million inhabitants.
