Bus Route No. 66
As a child I used to travel alone from my place in Dadar to my uncle's place in Girgaum by a double decker bus. The route number was 66. The journey used to take half an hour or more and I killed the time reading the sign boards of all the shops along the road. Some habits never grow up I guess. There was another bus, number 65, that took a longer route to the same destination. On its way it would pass on the edges of Kamathipura, Mumbai's red light district. But that is another story.
