Match day ticket frenzy
We decided to have another flexible day today as we had arranged another meeting (which didn’t take place). Rhys finally awoke just after 9:30 – his body alarm clock must have alerted him to the hotel’s breakfast service closing at 10:00!
We finally managed to get our tickets for tonight’s game between the Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings. They had been sent to a “friend of a friend’s address” who had flown back to Delhi yesterday and hadn’t told his room-mate that we were coming! Using the rickshaw driver as translator and a frantic call to our contact in Delhi, we’d secured our tickets.
The exhaustion and stress of racing around Mumbai to get the tickets meant that this afternoon was a very sleepy one – I went to bed for an afternoon siesta to charge my batteries before we headed out to the same stadium that India won the Cricket World Cup at earlier this month.
