Experiencing Life in an Indian Slum.

I would never have guessed that Mumbai’s largest slum would be one of my favorite parts of India. Not only my favorite, but one of the calmest, safest, and most informational too. In Mumbai we had the chance to tour the largest Indian slum, Dharavi. In fact, Dharavi is actually the largest slum in Asia, not by size, but rather […]
