Moi Back, Pune Diary concludes.

After an amazing holiday I am back to Dilli, the temperature has dipped but I am waiting for that teeth clattering winter to set in.

During my last few days in Pune I got an opportunity to explore the countryside of Maharashtra (see pic)

Had lots of nariyal pani, panipuri, theplas, poha, bhel that my  craving for all this grub has been satiated for at least a few months :).

It is a people friendly city, not a single autowala refused to ferry us and I paid by the meter. Even climbed 103 stairs to reach the Parvati Temple on the hilltop all the huffing-puffing proved to be worth the effort because from here you get an aerial view of the city, see here.

Connected with some old friends not just mine but my mum’s too. She was ecstatic to meet her childhood pal after 35 years!

Would I go back? Of course I will, so much more to be explored!

Apols: Dearest Dr. D couldn’t carry back your fav Coconut ice cream :(. Pats carried back a box of Ginger cookies exclusively for you which got hijacked in the morning itself…

Pune diary continues…

Never did I imagine that a holiday means no rationing on fun, masti and mazza. I know I sound cliched but what the heck. Saturday and Sunday were spent lazing around, playing with my niece… umm it’s nice to baby sit just that she keeps us on our toes and is a complete lets go out’ kinda girl unlike her mother 😉

Pune is Fashionable! and no I did not go to a single brand store and checked out only neighbourhood boutiques which are in plenty here quite unlike saddi Dilli. Needless to say I splurged and the girl in me is making the most of it.Chic short black dresses, tube tops, dangris are latest in vogue here. Though my purchases are a little off beat which means half a dozen Pune sarees being on number-1.

Talking of food this place has ‘n’ number of amazing confectioneries, each one better than the other. And during my three day stay so far I have tried and had more than ‘just meals’. From a typical Maharastrian thali at Panchvati to four different flavours of ice creams at Naturals to a meal at ABC farms and gorging on everything the bakery across the street ‘ French Connection’ has to offer to simply munching melt in the mouth biscuits.

Next on my list is Good Luck Cafe, Malaka Spices, Budhani’s and let’s see where else my feet take me. 🙂 

One thing is certain I will return to Delhi a lot heavier on weight and equally lighter on my pocket, but what to do! What to do! I am just doing what everyone asked me to, enjoy maddi! 🙂
