Finally managed to find a free slot to look around in the old city. Visit Shaniwar Wada fortification which we didn't have a chance to visit in a first day. Even though we were just at the entrance.
There is a clean green park inside the fortress. It's good to walk there, which is a rare case for the city. There are just a few places like this.
It's also allowed to walk on the fortress wall. Though there is a small chance to have a quiet walk over there: all these people climb there to take some pictures, so if downstairs some would hesitate to ask for a selfie, on the top they definitely won't miss the chance (:
In the hot day locals really love to have some rest in the shadow.
Some sort of flee market.
I was surprised, but Pune is quite important city in India. It's in top 10 cities by population, has good infrastructure (at least by local standards). It is surrounded by mountains and close to the ocean, thus the climate is much softer here.
There are some well-known universities. Sometimes Pune is called Oxford of Asia. That's why a lot of IT companies are willing to open an office here. That's why a lot of people lives in Mumbai but works in Pune.
The most surprising thing was that badminton was invented in Pune (didn't see a single time someone playing it here) (:
Quite often I saw some strange juice machines on the street. This is how they get sugar cane juice (I didn't like it at all).
And flowers. Incredible amount of flowers near the market. All of them without stables.
Must be a profitable business.
The market is amazing. Fruits, vegetables for any kind of taste. Really fresh and tasty. It's already evening, the temperature cools down. People return home after the business day. Just about the right time to get ready before evening session :)
Never saw so many peppers.
Interesting city, there are even some places left I didn't visit. However I don't think I would come here for vacation. There are much more interesting places in India worth to visit.
