It would be nearly impossible for me to capture everything I love about Mumbai for the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project all in one blog. (I mean I’ve been doing this for two years and I’m still nowhere near done!) So here’s what I did instead; I asked the awesome peeps I have been traveling with to pick their favorite pictures of Mumbai by night (or day) and describe the city in just three words. Besides we already know that Mumbai nightlife rocks right? :) More pix of Mumbai Nightlife here.
Psst! For some first-time visitors Mumbai can be quite overwhelming, but I have to give it up for this incredible crew of creative minds for taking the honking, Delhi-belly, never-ending sea of people, heat, smells sights and sounds in their stride and rocking it up with me for three nights to discover Mumbai my way, I miss you already <3 xoxo

Darragh Doyle from Ireland is an interviewer, blogger, twitterer, communications manager for boards, online trainer, website owner and like he says “uses the internet to help people find out about things” at thisiswhatido.org. He stole one of his girlfriends stuffed toys and diligently photographed it on his travels which I think is simply adorable.

The photo is of Darragh's henna tattoo. I just liked it because it showed how much he threw himself into the whole experience, and was embraced by it.
