I happened to stop over in Pune during my trip back to Bangalore. As short as the stay is, I got a chance to go around the city, to some not so famous places and therefore getting the feel of the genuine pune, instead of the famous pune.
Things are cheap, the autowalla will happily go with you on the meter reading instead of haggling on a fixed price. Even then, the price that comes out to be, is lot lower than the comparable fare in the autos in Delhi or Bangalore.
Weather is great, sometimes its a bit humid, but otherwise great.
The list of cultural events is huge, seriously huge. Whatever it is that you like, you'd find it happening in pune.
love the place so far, will write further...
