Lost in Antiquity

Decided to make use to the long weekend, took Deepthi to Chor Bazaar, Haji Ali & Chowpatty. It’s been ages since I last went to Chor Bazaar, We used to go there to buy cheap original sports shoes which used to be flicked from the docks.
Chor Bazaar today has become a must do itinerary on a Firang’s trip to the city and the Bhangarwala’s have become Antique Shops and must smarter, savvy and quote crazy prices for their wares.

Having said that, Chor Bazaar is a fun place to visit and to get lost in antiquity ;-)

    @ arun thanks man :)

    @manoj Same here, I last went there some 8 yrs ago :)

    @shiva It was the place where thieves sold their stuff, hence the name Chor Bazaar.
