Back on the road

We're sitting at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai waiting for our flight to Hong Kong. We've spent the past seven weeks in India and the time has just flown. It's also felt like a bit of a break from the rest of our trip because our time in India has been much more about catching up with family and friends in familiar places than exploring places we've never been. We haven't had to book many flights or hotels over the past two months and it's been a valuable respite, but I'm excited to get back on the road.

Our next destination is China, another country to which neither Kruti nor I have been. I'm extremely excited to see China's tremendous development and growth for myself. The world compares China and India, but all of the Indians I know who have actually been to China say it's not much of a competition. China is in a separate league. Our plan is to travel to Shanghai, Beijing, Xi'an to ogle the Army of Terracotta Warriors, Guilin to explore the Li River and countryside, and hopefully Yunnan to hike the Tiger Leaping Gorge before returning to Hong Kong. Goodbye India, hello China.
