 Turks are to Germany what Indians and Pakistanis are to Britan and Italians were to New York.. Also as the Indians introduced chicken tikka masala, curry and chai to Britan the Turks introduced the döner kebab.

Doner Kebab.

 And at only 1.50 euro is probably the cheapest thing people with devalued currencies can afford [me]. Germans consume 200 to 300 metric tons of döner kebab per day. In 1998, they spent about €1.5 billion on döner kebabs. Also they're are supposed more popular then the home grown Currywurst or the frankfurter

Pune is an interesting city in the West of India about 100 miles off India's Commercial capital, Mumbai. It's well connected and it's worth a visit if you want to spend some time in cheaper, smaller Indian city with all the metropolitan feel. From Mumbai it's a short 3 hour bus journey away. Bus leave every fifteen minutes from Dadar in Mumbai, cost about 250 Rs, [4$s] Here are some pictures I took in Pune. If you want further infomation leave me a comment. VIA trivial matters.
