Today's morning sketch was at the Tilak Smarak Mandir chowk and I sketched the iconic traditional eatery 'Badshahi' which also has boarding facilities for college students and serves simple home cooked food. They have a strict policy about not wasting food and I quite like that.

The sketch meet today was the the Vruddheshwar Siddheshwar Ghat on the banks on the Mula River. There was a River walk conducted by the Jivitnadi group which aims at creating awareness about the life of rivers. I attended the walk for a few minutes to sketch the group and heard some very interesting facts about Pune. The guide said that fossils of the Ostrich and Mammoth have been discovered in Pune in the past and also the bones of a now extinct animal which was the predecessor of the domestic cow. Also the rivers in Pune flow eastward to the Bay of Bengal rather than the Arabian sea which is closer because the continent tilts in that direction. How fascinating! I will surely do this walk entirely sometime to discover more about my city. The second sketch is that of the Siddheshwar mandir.

Had such a lovely morning with some fellow urbansketchers @botecopune which specializes in authentic Brazilian food. The decor of the restaurant is very unique, bohemian and chique at the same time. There are various Brazilian items on display like musical instruments, flags, football memorabilia, etc. We ended the sketching session with a sumptuous breakfast of pancakes, croissants, sautéed veggies and cappuccino.
