Returning to India

This summer I had the opportunity again to visit India for a couple of days. Before flying home after a busy working-schedule, I had some hours by myself to walk around the streets of Pune. It's funny how the hotel personnel always tries prevent you from doing so.

The picture above was taken at the Aga Khan Palace in Pune. It was constructed in 1892 and it is easily one of the few remaining historic buildings you can find around town. The Aga Khan is considered a monument of national importance as Ghandi and his wife were interned in the palace for 2 years. Tucked away in a corner of the gardens I bumped into a column that holding Ghandi's ashes. Such a historic place and hardly any tourist to be found.
