(Quote from ‚HAVANA HOURS‚
Imitation of Innocence by José Ramón Fajador)
Streets lined with mansions that have fallen prey to the poison ivy of time. Silently, they oppress their long-spanning incertitude, being a witness of the years and the history. All these years, all these stories. We can see people walking down the streets, lost in thought, with faces of everyday’s haze of indifference, while others are immersed in the surrounding setting, barely standing out.
The population density in Mumbai reaches values that are achieved in hardly any other agglomeration in Europe. The city has a population of 28,508 people per square kilometre.

According to United Nations estimates, 28.5 million people will live in the Mumbai conurbation in 2020.
