...Following a short stop in Singapore, the Captain and crew board the pirate ship and set sail once again. Luckily, they can take a shortcut to their next destination. The plan was to take the train but after the Greyhound bus fiasco, not to mention being incarcerated in the middle of nowhere with just coloring books and crayons to play with, it was decided the regular mode of transportation would be best. Besides, the train company could not promise there would be enough rum for the trip. No self-respecting pirate crew travels without sufficient rum. With the course plotted, the ship sails smoothly through the Strait of Malacca, into the Indian Ocean and then the Arabian Sea. Not knowing exactly where to find the birthday boy, the Captain has the ship dock in Mahim Bay and hopes the search won't be too hard. Realizing there are 19,000,000 people in Mumbai, all thoughts of an easy search fall by the wayside...

As the crew aimlessly wanders the streets, they (once again) begin the ritual singing of a song...

It's a beautiful mornin', Ahhh,
I think I'll go outside a while,
An jus' smile.
Just take in some clean fresh air, boy!
Ain't no sense in stayin' inside
If the weather's fine an' you got the time.
It's your chance to wake up and plan another brand new day.
Either way,
It's a beautiful mornin', Ahhh,
Each bird keeps singin' his own song.
So long!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARIF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful birthday (Nov. 23rd) filled with family, friends and lots of fun!!! Rumor has it that little Ayaan has a special present for you - he's going to let you feed him, diaper him, play with him, watch him sleep, diaper him again and again... And again...

... As the crew continues to wander around the city completely lost, they finally lose interest in finding Arif and turn their attentions to finding gin and tonics instead. This crew has the attention span of fruit flies or maybe mosquitoes or perhaps even snails. Do snails have attention spans? Doesn't matter as they have all disappeared from sight and Captain Isa has once again resigned herself to finding a vodka tonic as she hates gin...

Thanks Hien, Itenerant, James, Becky, Heather and Steff for the warm wishes:)

Special thanks to Isa and Kris for the beautiful poetry and searching for me through the Mahim Bay and onto the crowded streets of Mumbai:) Ayaan sends special kisses to Isa for being fondly remembered

It was a refreshing birthday this time for me !! We hired a Catamaran and set off to a nice n secluded beach close to Mumbai, cut the cake and ate it too and then spend the evening in a small bar resonating with soothing music
