There is nothing to do at Mumbai airport either as a heads up!! The only bar is through security

Just done my 13 hr stay, survived, and am now in work!!!

Big props to the India tourists though, good work all

Deano, we went to the Royal Meridan for a beer or three last night in our 8 hour stop in Bombay. Give yourself half hour on the way back though, it was carnage last night. Enjoy Goa, get Deco to learn that new verse for Jamaica 8-)

Hope you guys had a good time in Goa. Sorry that getting there was such a pain in the arse. We had similar getting to Bombay due to the Indian players being on different flights to us, ours got jumped down the queue!
Still, at least we all got where we wanted in the end.
See you soon I hope.
Trinidad? Cape Town?
Hope so.

John,

Had a good time in Goa. A hassle getting there, but was a hassle getting everywhere on this tour with all the changes!! All worth it in the end though. In Mumbai now having a last night in India before we fly home tomorrow.

Definitely see you in Trinidad if you make it, otherwise in/around The Oval this summer, and we're also pretty certain for Cape Town next winter!!

Speak soon mate.
