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. Pune - India [taking at Shaniwar Wada, Pune] Photo/Pictures are regular features on this blog and have been for some time. Here my most recent addition to my Photo diaries, the Pune Dairy.
