Mumbai, India

Driving through the city is never dull. It's one of the only places that I've visited where getting somewhere becomes an adventure. The combination of people, cars, two / three wheelers, trucks, carts and animals creates this chaotic (but wonderful) layer to the society. It simply buzzes with life.

Here you can see a slum development that has started building on top of itself. Its actually going vertical due to the land constraints. Just amazing to see how people adapt to the changing city - the level of improvisation is truly amazing.
