4:10 The alarm goes off. I give in to instinct and snooze it. 5 minutes later, guilt takes over and I raise myself.

NC has arrived last night, to save time. We went for a quick spin and filled petrol last night. I am used to the attendants swarming round the car by now.
It's too small! Too small to drive to Delhi! I am still laughing at NC's first words as he walked in last night.

It has taken him 5 seconds of driving to guess that there is too much air in the tyres. Me? All these days I thought the car was plain bumpy.

5.55; its been an hour since we've left. We've covered about 56kms. The road has been pathetic in many places.

NC has been driving since we've left. Its too dark to take photos, I've made a few videos.

Hello fellows,

We have reached Vapi right now - 2.5 hours from Sam's place and 171 kms. Doing good time. Plan is to re-fuel in Valsad.

The fuel gauge is at half tank - we shall update the FE after re-fuel.
