After a break of about a month, I was eager to get back on the cycle. I cycled along the Western Express Highway till Mira Road, then took the detour towards the shore and rode along the mangroves of Uttan, climbed up Uttan hill, then down to Gorai. I visited the Global Vipassana Center to admire the giant Stupa, then rode ahead to Manori, took the ferry across to Marve, rode till Madh, took another ferry to cross over to Versova and then returned home. A great way to start a Sunday!

USA – March 2013, a set on Flickr.

A 2 week business visit took me from Pittsburgh, New York, Princeton, Chicago and Washington DC. The weather was weird – just beyond winter but not yet spring, but enjoyed myself nevertheless.
