A taxi driver was sitting on the hood, waiting for customers. Not many locals take taxis in Mumbai, but this was in front of the hotel, so I guess a lot of people do.

As I passed by, the driver called out to me and said, 'If you ever need a taxi, you can always take one from here'.

Even so, I don't often get in a taxi. It's fair to say that I rarely take a taxi because I always walking around the streets, and the only time I can think of an opportunity to take a taxi is when I'm heading to the airport.

Unfortunately, it seemed unlikely that I would ask this rather cheerful taxi driver.
