Photojournalism: Pune

It was an excellent weekend in Pune. I'm too tired to post much as these crazy Indians had me shop till I dropped, then kept me out most of the night, up early for sight-seeing, and stuffing me with Indian food at every chance they got.

Here are a few photos from the weekend:

The Drive to Pune

The Most Powerful Ganesh in Pune: The line was over two hours to make an offering to Ganesh, which (to answer Kirk's question) was not Peanuts but Coconuts and Flowers

View of Pune from Hotel

Fresh Guava Served with a Sprinkle of Salt and Chili Powder- Delicious

Gateway to Shaniwarwada, the Remains of A Mansion built 1730-1732. The spikes on the door were to prevent forced using elephants to ram the doors open.
