Long drive to Delhi - 29: On way to Pune, Maharashtra

Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen - Benjamin Disraeli 

I totally agree with the above quotation. In 30 days we covered 5000 km on Alto 800, saw many cities, forts, temples, beaches, took hundreds of snaps. Blogs about what had been seen seems less than what we remember. To blog about what we saw & remeber during full journey may take months.

After overnight stay in Panhala Fort we moved towards Pune. Distance is about 230 km & roads good. Some snaps taken on road to & in Pune are here:

Panaromic view from Panhala Fort before saying bye to Fort

This well equipped biker zipped past in fraction of a second & we could not even identify make of the bike
Tea break near Karad, Satara - Poha, Sabudana tikki, chutney & chahaa

Can't climb the hills? Drill a hole 

Entrance of the tunnel

And out of the cave 

Another longer one - 1.3 km

Traffic mess in Pune as in other towns of India. No helmets, no seat belts & no lanes

And urban mess in Pune as in other towns of India. Short cuts from wrong side & no footpath for pedestrians 

Watch out for the gun in Pune Cantt
Cantonements are generally clean & have many old fashioned barracks
