Escape from Cubicle

(Friday, Oct 28th)

I look longingly at the world beyond the confines of this cubicle. The world outside beckons. I conspire and plot to make a break... this weekend...

(Saturday, Oct 29th)

I and Everyman set upon a bike ride into the Western Ghats. This time there was no monsoon. The sky was blue and the hills were beginning to dry. The waterfall that was roaring was now down to a trickle, with tiny fish stranded in little pools awaiting a dry grave... The grass still retained some of the green, now a more yellowish shade.... It was still beautiful!







Misson Accomplished!!! :-) :-) :-)

Amazing photos !!

Where is this place in the photos?

I'm from Pune too. I've moved to the UK last week but I've been on so many treks in and around Pune (and also one in the Himalayas recently).

Do check my blog when you get time.
