Hey Guys! ♥
Today it’s just going to be a very short and quick update on what I’ve been up to this past weekend, before we’re leaving for Goa over Easter 😉
Saturday, Marina and I decided to have a “Bloody Brit Day Out”. All dressed up and ready for Ascott, we went to High Spirits, where they had decorated the whole place to match the British theme and a Beatles cover band was playing. To complete our British style, we of course had to have a few early afternoon cocktails too 😉 I’m not sure how authentically British the Earl Grey Fizz really is, but it was definitely enjoyable. They really went all out at High Spirits with the British theme, Union Jacks everywhere, Fish ‘n’ Chips, and even a Buckingham Palace Tea Party Photo Op!
On Sunday, one of Thomas’ colleagues agreed to give us a private tour through Pune. He even rented a bus for us for the whole day to take us through the city! Our first stop was Pune University, founded in 1948.
Afterward, we were driven to a Temple, of which I unfortunately can remember neither the name nor the location 😀 It was a a very nice and quite big Temple though, with an old stone cave with shrines on site.
After yet another trip to Laxmi Road we had lunch, and then it was time for the biggest event of the day 😉
We went to the zoo again, where we were able to adopt two of the elephants for a day, which meant that we could actually get into their compound and watch them taking a shower. We even managed to touch them, even though we officially weren’t allowed because it was “too dangerous” *rolls eyes* Unfortunately we were only allowed inside the compound for about 15-20 minutes, but as you can imagine this was still one of the greatest moments of my life 😉 Elephants are truly one of the most fascinating animals in the whole world, and being able to stand right in front of one and pet it definitely brought one or two tears into my eyes (yes, I’m like that).
After that we went for one last stop to a Sikh Temple, but since photographs weren’t allowed there I don’t have any pictures to show, but I think Marina and I definitely want to go back there to enjoy the atmosphere.
And that was it for the week! As I’ve already mentioned, next week were going to Goa, so you can probably look forward to some sunny beach pictures 😉
See you! ✿✿✿
