Well what a time I have had this week with Frank and Sam, cracking guys man! Training is going really well, I am so proud of the team and how much progress they have made.

We have been out and about sampling the wares of the streets and the works of the canteen. That is an experience in itself lol. But hey its well cheap. Suechzan what ever and all the ginger tea in the world.

So any way back to what I have been up to.

Well I decided to go to Lavasa City with the lads, Rakesh, Sunny, KK and Suraj, they said that they were going to take me to the most beautiful place in Maharashtra, and they are not kidding, this place was stunning and blew me away, a little peice of Italy in a wilderness of sand and dust, just like an oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of the biggest country I have ever visited.

We had proper Italian Iced Coffees and done a bit of sight seeing but the biggest thrill was the bike ride there. An ecstatic journey through all the little villages and when we stopped to pick wild mango off the trees and just sat and ate by the roadsdie that was excellent! We also went Air Rifle Shooting ( I am sure the sights were out lol) that was a great laugh and then set off on the journey home in the dusk. This was a great experience which really drove home the diversity here in such a huge country.

I eventually got home 2 hours later after "chunnering" through the rush hour traffic, but also a a day I wont forget where I witnessed some amazing sights and beautiful awe inspiring landscapes.

We have decided to visit Rajiv Ghandi Zoo tomorrow to see some of the Indian wild animals, including an White Tiger, Snake Pit and Indian Elephants, I wonder what is around that corner........................
