Tuesday

Sigh...



Straight road
Gentle curves
Breathless view
Long tunnels
Stone bridges
Highway clouds
Bodiless trucks
Toll plaza
Lake at Khopoli
Valley and hills
Fog and rain
Six lane highway with a lane shoulder on either side
The Mumbai Pune expressway lacks the Indian road chaos; almost feel one with the wind. Makes me want roads like that in Bombay – just the roads, where I can drive for 10feet and not find a single ditch, crater, pothole. Possible you think?

ALLEX said...

open and straight roads.... heaven to be in ..... good way to relax and getaway after a hectic week...... long drive- best way to venture ahead

Mee said...

Ajeya! Where have you disappeared to? Come back, all's forgiven!:)

Allex- when are you venturing ahead?:)

ALLEX said...

i think when we start to think we dampen our pace.... a good impulsive kickoff is required...:)

Mee said...

More power to impulse:)

Wish they made something like this between Bangalore n Mangalore too.. The ghat section has been under constant repairs since 2007 and a nightmare to travelers.
Only consolation is the new train service which is almost always booked.

Mee said...

Brian -I once flew Bglr Mglr, and boy was it a scenic landing:) Lush green!
