Though I am not too sure how that works.
I will allow our TBHPians from Gujarat to vouch for it
Maybe next time you are in Gujarat you can have a tequila on the Rann... Just carry the lemon, plenty of salt around anyways

You can legally as a non GJ Resident and there are again there are rules on when and where you can comsume (definitely not Public places anyway). It is a licence, well almost and comes with at least 20 points on the back of that signed and stamped piece of paper.

Like Hemant says, this isn't something we can discuss on Public forum .

Wow. The efforts you took in compiling this epic travelogue is just amazing. You should seriously consider creating your own travel blog. Your trip also proves what a reliable machine the Punto is. It must be a bliss on the highways, and sitting in a tank gives you a peace of mind.

I have a question, sorry if you have answered this before, did you use any app to record all the fuel and other expenses?

Thank you once again for inspiring many like me. We live in a beautiful country and one must explore it well before venturing in a broader world.

We all are waiting for the answer to, "What Next?" !!

Thanks Dieselritzer

I used no app to record these data. A simple notepad and a pen in the top glovebox of the car is all we used.

All expenses were written in the notepad as and when we spent.
Whenever we changed the driver, we noted the ODO
Whenever I filled up petrol, we wrote the ODO, fuel pricing and fuel filed
Toll tickets-we took photos on the camera.

The co-passenger is thereby kept busy most of the times

Hemanth,

Thank you for this travelogue. This travelogue has started a discussion amongst a few close friends. Here is hoping that something materialises.

Hemanth,

In barney stinson style I would like to say
Your travelogue's are legen -- wait for it. dary!
I have read We ran out of road! , N.E.W.S. and this travelogue. The way you presented with your narration and pictures were amazing along with the information you have provided.

That's an awesome Punto you got.

@avinashsg - Your Safari a.k.a "AIRAVATHA" with the two elephants is just superb. Awesome vehicle.

Just keep going guys. Good Luck.

Everytime I sit in this vehicle, just the commanding position is enough to bring a smile on my face.
