Looks like you showed your inlaws all around the place and earned a good reputation.

P.S: Good pictures as always. Btw what is your monthly mileage?

50km-60km daily for 22 days and some kms over the weekend. So, it should be around 1400km-1600km/month.

Now you got a new heart, you can stay behind me at 140kmph while i am cruising at 160kmph

Dont worry, as you can see the water is absolutely clean and clear, so venture out there this summer in full gusto!

Next day, we decided to have a sumptous lunch at Angeethi and followed by a visit to Lumbini Park for a boat ride to Lord Buddha's abode

Nice pics there Avi, Hyd has more place to explore now.During my 10 years those parks were not there. There was the boring Indira park, Golconda Fort, Birla Mandir and ofcourse nagarjuna Sagar a little far.

Cant believe necklace road and areas surrounding buddha statue has become so hitec now. I still remember the day when buddha status fell down into HussainSagar in early 90s and it took few years to bring it back.

Its simple dude, we have made our extra curricular as curricular and curricular as extra-curricular. That way there is no conflict between them.

Thanks Abhi. Sure, in the last 5-6 years Hyd as taken a hop skip and jump in terms of development. It is one of the best cities to live in India

Rajesh,MC,
Whether Hyd develops/developed/not-developed, It would still have a special place in my heart. Being spent my formative years there, it will remain special.

I must also add bangalore too is a wonderful place to line in as well. bumps, humps, traffic are everywhere I guess.

Our next stop was to one of the best parks in Hyderabad. NTR Gardens has been designed like a Mini-Sentosa. There are quite a few similarities to that famous singapore theme park.

They got some pretty lighting equipment there and a unique sit-in-a-car-have-your-dinner restuarant ala. the movie Pulp Fiction where John Travolta and Uma Thurman have their dinner date.

On the whole, it's a nice place to spend a couple of hours in the evening.
