The Road Trip was a blast. Some 40-45 of us, including a cacophony of kids (my own coinage, but could work), set off bright and early on the morning of Sunday, July 22. Made good time, had a satisfying breakfast at Paroda, and arrived at our first stop -- the foot of Chandreshwar hill. Here, on the concrete cover of a pipeline (I'm guessing), we did our first two rounds of quizzing. Nitish Wagle and Sadhika Buddaseth did the interrogation. Rajiv had, in a fit of efficiency, worked out the teams in advance, and that allowed us to start off quickly.

|Our next stop was the Bubdbudanche Tollem at the Gopinath Temple. Some people got wet in the pond, some stayed out of the rain, and yet others went exploring in the temple. A millipede made an appearance.|
|The final destination was the Tanishker Farm in Netravali. Had a great lunch, followed by a full afternoon of quizzing. Some found other ways to entertain themselves.|
