  4. It's nice for a city to keep/presere it's old buildings. I think every major city has his own OLD TOWN section.

  10. I'm in Mumbai these days (it's my first time) and I'm loving the place so much! I've recently posted a picture on a similar-looking building. I find it fascinating how people have managed to personalized their flats/rooms by painting it with the color of their choice.
