Day 1 -- Bengaluru to Nagpur

Today was the first day of the drive which I was planning for a long time. The original plan was to leave at 4 AM, but since I got late in going to bed, I decided to leave little late.
6:30 AM Left home.
8:07 AM Stopped at Kamat Upachar near Chikkaballapur. This place is really losing its quality very quickly and many better places seem to have come up enroute.
9:50 AM Crossed Anantpur. I always take this picutre of ISCKON when I cross Anantpur. The place seems to have got a fresh coat of paint.

12:40 PM Stopped at Bharathi 97 Food and Fuel for fuel top up and a chai.
2:00 PM Entered the hyderabad ORR, realized that the speed limit has been reduced from 120 kph to 100 kph.
3:05 PM Reached Coffee Day at Nagulapally. This has become one of my favorite places to stop on this route.

4:45 PM Crossed Nizamabad
5:30 PM Crossed Nirmal
6:15 PM Crossed Adilabad
6:55 PM Crossed Pandharkawada
7:30 PM Crossed Wadki
The road work on this secton of road seems to be progressing at a snail's place. There hasn't been any significant improvement compared to summer time when I last drove through this route. The road has become much worse because of potholes due to rain.
8:15 PM Crossed Hinghanghat.
9:00 PM Crossed Buti Bori
9:20 PM Reached Le Meridien Nagpur. This is one of my favorite places to stay in Nagpur because of its proximity to highway.
