Frommers India 4th Edition - Mumbai Magic

Frankly folks, I don't know whether to grin or blush or what.

You guys simply *have* to read this review that just appeared in the latest Frommers India guide!!

For those who want to know what the 3-star rating means - here's the guide to Frommer's ratings:

According their website: "the Frommer's star rating is meant to quantify the kind of intangible, experiential elements that help travelers make informed decisions.

The "baseline" recommendation is zero stars - every hotel, restaurant, attraction, shop, and nightlife establishment that Frommer's chooses to review is recommended; otherwise, we simply wouldn't include it."

I'm soooooooo very pleased with this review! Actually, even that's an understatement. At the moment, I want to twirl around and hug someone at Frommers (if only I knew who wrote this!). Unfortunately, after being labelled "super-sophisticated", twirling is out, so I am forced to offer a more sedate thanks.

Hey Anu, being called multi-talented, yeah, sure, but super-sophisticated? With "delicious opinions" on everything? Woooohooooo!

Hi Deepa,

Congrats. I started reading your blog since last year. I love reading your blog. I love all small details you write about the city especially I love reading your mom's post office visit. Living in US makes me miss those times .

When everybody wants to visit europe and other exquisite places , Bombay is on my list. And it was on my list for a long time ever since I was a little girl. I really wished I had known this website before 2007 when I had all the time in the world.

I will defnitely contact you when I get a chance in future to visit bombay.

Keep writing about bombay.

your wannabe future customer :)

God Bless You and your awesome team!!!

I think that you could manage a Deepa-fied super-sophisticated swirl (am imagining a suitable outfit to work well here!) Well deserved – I'm a fan from way back!
