Arrived safe and sound in Mumbai early yesterday morning. Despite an arrival time of 11 p.m., traffic was bumper-to-bumper from the airport to the hotel. While most of the recent global security warnings have been centered on Europe, things remain tight here as well. Four people searched our car (including the undercarriage and the trunk) before letting us to the drop-off at the hotel. All bags have to go through a scanner before they are allowed in the lobby, and all people go through an airport body scanner as well. Most of the precautions went into place after hotels were targeted in November, 2008. Above is a photo from the window of my hotel room. The entire area is an emerging business park.
