Cybercruise: INTERNET - cybercafé

It is to the side of a newsagents (most convenient). Run by very friendly people and most importantly has a erliable connection.

You must produce some ID (as per the police requests) which will set you up with an "account". The rates aer cheap and the owner of the café did not seem obsessed with time watching!

I went here a number of times and each time I had to direct the taxi driver (one of whom had never been and was so impressed he bought himself a shirt!)!

What to buy: When I was left stranded in Mumbai (volcanic ash blah blah blah) I ran out of clothes and so this market was a gem!
The best way to do your shopping here is to have a mooch about, look at the 'fixed prices' to get a good idea of what things cost and then set off on your shopping mission. NB if you are even looking remotely interested the 'fixed price' sign may magically disappear so... keep your eyes alert else you will get ripped off! I chose a top with a fixed 100INR price - when I went to buy it the price suddenly jumped to 500INR! I got it for 100INR and bought several more too!

Directions: Head around by Floral Fountain.
Go to the corner of Ramdeo Podak Chowk
