29th May :- We went to Alibaug in late morning as planned. Thankfully our hotel was near an auto stand so we didn’t have to walk much in the hot sun. Alibaug is quite well-developed commercially. But the only shopping we did there was to buy “hapoos” mangoes at cheaper price and of better quality than Pune. 😀 😀 We also had tender coconut water there but it was tasteless. The best tender coconut water is available at Konark, Orissa. 🙂

28th May:- To avoid getting sick on the boat ride to Mandwa port, I had not eaten anything at CST. I had thought that would be enough and had not taken medicine for motion sickness.
The boat ride was a lesson for me. I and few other passengers (guys and girls) got seasick. D, however, was perfectly fine and enjoyed the boat ride.
I was totally exhausted by the time we reached Mandwa. After a bit of hotel searching, we decided to stay at Nandanvan holiday home at Kihim Beach.
During my summer vacation stay at Pune this year, D and I had gone on a short trip to Kihim and Alibaug during weekend. So before I get too late in posting my account of the trip like Vimmuuu [ 😛 ] and I forget the details for the travelogue, here is the first part of the three post series.
