Red Roads

I recently got to do some serious driving through the state of Karnataka which got me cutting through the Deccan plateau. There are a chunk of roads which are simply red all over, from the tarmac to the street signs to the trees and greenery all around. I wish I had stopped and taken more photos of all of them.


I happen to be in Chennai a lot and have never really thought of driving down. But recently found myself with the urge to explore Indian highways (only civilzation point A -> B for now, thank you very much) and got into my car at 5 am.
360 kms in ~3.5 hours. The drive upto Chennai was great with clean, comfortable 2 lane highways. However, the Mumbai-Pune expressway is still a league apart.
