That's my camera doing duty of these pictures.

Here are some pictures before we bid farewell to Osbourne resorts and were checking into Molly's. I loved the Molly's room.

As they say, the standard of the room can be made out from its bathroom. And, their bathroom was fit to sleep in

How true you are !!! That's why wherever I go out of station on duty or on personal work, I check the hotel bathroom first and then the room.

Avi, you mean to say that last pic in the set of your last post where one of you is happily lounging is actually the bathroom?

You guys appear to have been saturated by booze and I thought that was what Sushrutha was talking about.

If its the Anjuna that is being spoken about, then I don't understand why its 'not the same anymore'. When I was there a couple of years back, it was still rocking. Contact the bartender of the watering hole just adjacent to the flea market to know the events schedule.

I was at the flea market on a wednesday last year and thought it wasn't quite as before. Anyways, probably my idea of having fun has changed over the years

Great pics, Avi!
I have another question for you---where did you hit the NH4, and how many kms did you travel on it? Also, where exactly did you turn off it to get into the Amboli route?

After crossing Jaisinghpur, you take a right from under the NH4 and get on to the highway. Actually, there are 2 routes to get into Amboli ghat

1. You will find Hotel Kaveri right on the NH4 on your right hand side after driving for about 40kms or so. Take the route adjacent to it and it will lead directly to Amboli.

2. Since i was out of fuel i went ahead and took a right after a petrol bunk on the right, going via. Gandhiglaj, Ajra etc and this road again meets the above road before leading towards Amboli Ghat.

Some more random pictures of the trip

Thanks Avi. So that means the dream drive on NH4 is limited to about 40 kms only?
