  •  Mumbai (Bombay then) (5+ / 0-)

    I was in Poona (old spelling) only once during a trip my family took... Our car broke down in the evening on the way there and we got a lift from on a truck for the rest of the way into Pune with my mother riding in the cab with the lorry driver and the rest of us perched on top of dusty bags of rock salt in the back with our luggage... Pune was as far as we got on that first attempt at extended trip that we had to return to Bombay for a restart making our way via plane, train, hired car, funicular rail etc. to Bangalore, Mysore city, Ootacumund and other areas in Southern Central India... and during the whole trip I was fighting a fungus infection on my foot that I caught during the short stay in Pune... so that is my one strong memory of Pune/Poona... a bunch of weeping sores on my foot from a Poona fungus while I saw some amazing things elsewhere.
