Ho!! Ho!! Ho!! Insignia's here....
Errr...what to do? Didn't feel the Christmas spirits this time.. So my spirit is hovering around...
As I said, I am back again before January 1st. But this is my last huh!! Swear!! I would not have access to my "Until death do us apart" laptop until January 3rd. I am off to Kerala!! Yeippeiieee...
Now now..this is just the beginning. Shortly after coming back, I am off somewhere out of the country and then couple of months later, again off outside India...Geeeeezzzz...no..no...Don't feel jealous!!
I had a chance to visit Pune, the usual Lonavla, Khandala and trekked a local hill and the icing on the cake was visiting "Choki Dhani" - a Rajasthani ethnic village. OK, straight to business. Guessed it right!! Pictures.....
Here are few....
National Highway - on the way to Lonavla
Lonavla Dam..The dam is further away
I somehow like these old worn out wall
As seen from Lonavla Dam..The smoke..the ghats...hmmm....
Khandala ghat. It was all dry
The NH seen from the ghat
A corn vendor
Gola vendor and his cart
My corn :-D
The cotton candy I had. I did eat lot of junk that day, these 2 being few of them
Sunset as seen from Khandala
The hill behind the place I stayed; I decided to climb it just out the blue, spontaneous. So started at 6 AM when it was chilly
Sunrise.....I first chided myself to have got the idea of trekking this hill. It was so cold that morning. But it was worth this view and much more
The destination...seems easy but it was not. But thankfully the climb was OK as the grasses and plants were dry.
Finally, the summit. A small temple. I love this scene
On the way back, spotted a myna. She was singing...was very sweet to hear...Early morning, calm and peaceful, great views...and a lovely song..What more should I ask for?
I deserved this..A hot cuppa and cream roll in a small shop after coming back.
The Rajasthani Ethnic Village is a different league in itself. Would write about it and share lot of beautiful pictures in my next post. :-)
Advanced New Year Wishes people!! Wish all ya folks a great year ahead with lot of fun and frolic!!
