Nice pictures, Jayesh. I really appreciate the fact that you took the pain to come back to update us even though the itinerary query initially went unanswered. My +1 reputation for that and also for these beautiful pictures. How about sharing some snaps of the Eeco? It seems you have painted its bumpers to body colour lately. :smile:

Drive Safe,

Thanks for the reputation.

I have uploaded the pictures of my EECO in ownership thread http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/f...my-familys-car-buying-ownership-review-3.html
and so refrained fro posting the same here, so as to avoid double pictures.
Will post a few here also.
Thanks[:D]

First parked the vehicle in Pay & park area ( its a bit safe there)[:)], the went to look for a good hotel with nice beds. Lastly found one just opposite to the place my vehicle was parked.Asked the owner for parking place and was allotted this one.

They also had a restaurant upstairs , so had dinner and went to sleep.[sleep]
