    We call them tum-tum in Pune.

    Hey, somehow the idea of auto-post dissuades me from commenting as I know you’re not here reading comments.

    Hope your trip is going fine!

      Hi Mahendra,
      I know what you mean, hence the hesitation while scheduling posts on my travels. I don’t think I’ll do that anymore… :D

  2. Oh that is just like the jeepneys in the Philippines! They have fixed routes, and there are signs up front saying where they are going. You pass your fare forward and change comes back. Except that it isn’t a closed vehicle like that, given the different climates.

    I don’t mind commenting on auto posts. Visited here after a long time. As usual it was entertaining to go through several of your photo posts. Lovely pics, and very neat.
    Enjoy.

    And how is the driving? I’m curious!

    • Priyank says:

      I must say that driving is pretty good. Ofcourse nobody will stop for pedestrians even if you are crossing the street, LOL!! But I didn’t feel like praying to Gods to protect my life from the driver… a good sign ;-)

    In Egypt, there are such ”shared taxis” in Alexandria and Luxor.

    I can relate to ur love for public transport and hatred for the private. To this day, I prefer giving a lift to fellow travelers on my way to the office as I hate to travel alone. :-)

      haha, yes I know some people who do that.. in fact when I was tired, I used to ask strangers (usually bikers) for a ride home!
