LONAVALA...





Spent the Sunday  at the picturesque town and hill station which is just 96 kms from Mumbai.
Lonavla and the adjacent Khandala are twin towns located around 622 m above sea level.
Its refreshing to travel to these towns as they are close as  takes about 2 hours by car and it’s so different from the concrete life of Mumbai. It’s cool, pleasant and lovely to look at..
We went there in the morning and were back by evening , but even that short visit was enough to refresh and rejuvenate me for the coming week which is going to be quite hectic with a big birthday bash to be planned.. At the end of the month..
Let me share with you a few pictures which I clicked while I was there….







   It started getting crowded as we were just reaching Lonavala

                           
                                           WATER FALL NEAR KHANDALA

It was quite misty when I clicked these picture and also very cool and refreshing to be standing there on top and looking at the huge waterfall at a distance.




                     This sweet fella was also there with his family


NOTHING LIKE A SPICED HOT ROASTED CORN WHICH IS ROASTED ON A COAL SHEGDI OR OVEN LIKE THING YOU SEE IN THE PICTURE... 


You can see how chilly it was by the dress the vendors are wearing...
You can also see some packets of boiled peanuts which is also consumed with relish here



You can see that the lady is fanning the coal shegdi in the above picture and that help to burn the coal which are in ..Can you see those yummy peanuts ? Have you eaten boiled peanut ?
