I wish to share with you the excitement of my first flight to Mumbai. As it was my first experience, I was a bit nervous.
On Monday, we boarded the huge aircraft where an air hostess greeted us with a smile. I occupied the window seat to enjoy my flight. As our plane took off I felt relaxed. When I looked down everything appeared to be very small.
It was so picturesque that if I were a poet I would have composed a poem. I was enjoying every moment of my journey.
After about two hours, we landed at the Mumbai airport. Before landing at the airport, I looked down to see the largest slums of Asia, ‘Dharavi slums’ about which I had heard so often from my father. Mumbai airport really looked amazing. I along with family also bought a few chocolates from the shop. It was a great adventure in my life.
