Where I stayed
Sue and Partap's farm
On the drive back towards Mahabaleshwar we spot a small cafe with an amazing view across the water - it doesn't have a menu but is very happy to do omlettes and chapatis - the first time they have served this we are told
Back in Mahabaleshwar we go to the golf club which still has a colonial feel to it with tea taken on the lawn, a formal dining area and the inevitable dress codes which go with this. This is where cousin Numrita got married and where all her friends stayed. Its great fun walking back through the market in Mahabaleshwar - it is so colourful and full of life - I hurriedly buy a pashmina with Sue and Phoebe and wish that i had more time to explore the market without children - we then find Phoebe some plimsolls so that she can go roller blading just down the road. There is a club here where Numrita and Tara used to come and even Jake has a go at roller blading - I'm quite relieved when he wants to give up and we all have a go at table tennis before heading home to the farm for supper. Mahabaleshwar has a real charm about it.
