Just Got Back From 3 Weeks in India & Nepal.. List of Porsches I Saw

1. Pananmera

We basically hit the golden triangle in India; Delhi, New Delhi, Jaipur, Ranthambore, Karauli, Agra, Khajuraho, and Varanasi. In Nepal we were in and around Kathmandu.

As always I enjoyed looking at the local cars. In some parts of India you would see Mercedes and Audis.. but no Porsches. The one Pananmera I saw was at a hotel in Jaipur. But, in many many cities you would not want to drive a nice car.

This was in Varanasi en route to see the Ganges River. A bike rickshaw was the best way to get around there. It was a great trip but boy is it nice to be home!

More true works have never been spoken. I thanked my lucky stars many times on that trip. Many many times.

I'd NEVER do something like that. Especially to a respected member such as Chuck. But often, its harder done than said.... arrgg

Travel-friend V2.0: Do not underestimate the power of the Porsche Design Eye Wear gears, Chuck. Now you know why those cost $1,200 for the entry level model!
