120 km and 5 hours (yes, both data points are accurate) from Mumbai. Went with about 15 friends and their wives and children. Great barbeque party at a villa to bring in the new year. Major overeating of freshly barbequed meat and veggies. Slept around 3, woke around 7 and following a leisurely breakfast, spent the entire day at Kashid beach playing cricket and pitthoo and then eating and drinking at the shacks. Started back for Mumbai at 7 and reached at midnight. Stopped at a dhaba along the way and had dinner. Forced break on account of a smoking engine. A nice stint of traffic vigilantee-ism on the way by knocking on car-windows of overeager overtakers and asking them, “Sir, are you in a greater hurry to get home than I am ?” in the politest manner possible.
