You need strong supple knees, it is fun when we are young but as one gets older things change. But research has proved that it is good for the bowels and keeps em in top shape.

Hopefully I haven't spoilt anyone's lunch.

Well great going. Guess the more you travel around this country the more you realise about different cultures. Wish i had a vehicle now. Would love a drive to any place.

Default YetiBlog® 23rd March 2008

Day 3 in India. It's a Sunday.

Ideally we would have liked to stay in all day and leave for Bombay on Monday, but we have to meet some people on Monday, so we have to cut our pune trip short.

We hop into Mocha for a quick sandwich and chai. TheOne® has discovered her drink. It is Masala Chai. The taste of India.

I decide to take Jenny around to my house in Pune, at Viman Nagar.
On the way there she discovers a fascinating ghoda-gadi.

Later we go to the Aga Khan Palace on Nagar road. My ticket, Rs.5/- her ticket Rs. 100/-

We have a German friend to meet at his beautiful home at Koregaon park. He is full of interesting stories, we enjoy them very much. He is a german man living in Pune for 8 years now.
Later we drive back to Mumbai. TheOne® still doesn't feel like driving. I am disappointed.
A simple home cooked meal of Palak Paneer with my dad and it's the end of another eventful day. She discovers Paneer and eats it every day till she returns back to Germany.

Tomorrow early morning, we will fly off to New Delhi.

Hey Jenny its a amazing write up, Sam and You can write a thriller with your India experiences;

Looking at India from your perspective is a real eye opener; the explanation of colors and life in India which we see everyday but somehow ignore it as a everyday affair.

Do keep this coming.
