There is a saying that goes as follows "When God gives you lemons, make lemonade!"
I guess we learnt a bit from this saying...
After long hours at work and harrowing commutes on Mumbai's roads, it was high time we stepped out of the city albeit for a shortwhile.
Just then a friend invited us over to Pune for his twins' first birthday celebrations. This was a Godsend opportunity.
We sent out for Pune at around noon and snaked through the pothole-ridden city roads to touch the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. And we weren't disappointed. The Expressway was clean and wide, we could speed up to above 100 kilometers an hour. The views were enthralling - the lush green that tells a story of how the Monsoons breathe life into India.
On the Expressway, we were greeted by gusty winds and heavy rain, but that too was fun. Anything away from Mumbai, today, is indeed fun!
