Last night the gang got together to check out Slumdog Millionaire, the Oscar-winning film about an Indian street urchin who competes in the country’s Who Wants To Be a Millionaire contest. Great film! I found it was a little bit of a fairy tale aspect to it but overall it was well done.
It’s interesting to see it after talking to my sister who was recently married in India. She told me that there are slums exactly as they’re depicted in the film. She also talked about being unable to wander around Mumbai alone since everyone feared for her safety if she were to do so.
I’m definitely thinking about going to India to check it out in the next couple of years. My sister and her husband are living in Dubai so I may head over to Dubai for a few days and then try to line up a G.A.P Adventures tour in India.
Speaking of India, the crew getting together for Indian food so I’m going to head out to join them.
