My companions were Apoorva Managoli, her dad Dr Sanjeev Managoli,and Vaibhav Chowdhary...that was like Black Forest with 3 different flavours of ice-cream! No, Sanjeev is not a car-diologist, but it was his new vehicle!




He also had a new toy:

The road passed through beautiful land:

Rustic living on the banks of a lake looks picturesque, but may not be comfortable!
