We departed Kolkata for the east coast city of Puri, Odisha. The road conditions remained favorable as we continued down the coastal highway onto Hyderabad, Telangana.
After spending the night in Puri we continued to Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. The city was picturesque and the beach was world class. The beach featured the Indian Submarine the INS Kursura which served in the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971.
We arrived in Hyderabad after dark as we encountered heavy rain and lightning, and even got a glimpse of lightning coming out of the clouds!
