The view of Mumbai and the Arabian Sea from our room on the top floor (33rd) of the Trident/Oberoi Hotel. The specks in the foreground are traditional Indian ocean-going gaff rigged sailboats. The hotel and the neighboring Taj were the 2 hotels attacked by terrorists in 2008, along with several public spaces, etc. The consequences of that disaster are still felt today with machine-gun-carrying guards everywhere—in the hotels, shopping areas, transit areas—basically anywhere where serious damage can be done quickly. Beautiful views.
