Where the Horse Power is Real

Matheran, a hill station a few hours outside of Bombay, was a quick weekend trip up into a place where cars aren’t allowed and the only means of access are by foot, by horse or by manpowered rickshaw.  Hill stations were originally refuges for the British rulers from the summer heat, but these days they really just attract tourists.

There were some very nice fews, some petulant horses, some persistent monkeys and bloodthirsty leeches thrown in, but all in all it was a relaxing day spent outside of Mumbai.  My horse didn’t want to go anywhere except when it need to go home, but hey, now I’ve been on a horse in India.
