1.Every time your Mumbaikar friends take a weekend trip to Pune, you’re reminded of how good your living situation is.
2.When they visit you, it takes you two minutes to make a plan because you can go from one end of Pune to another in an hour.
3....but when you visit them in Mumbai, you switch three modes of transportation and it still takes you 3-5 business days to get anywhere.
4.But at least Mumbai’s public transport shows up on time! You have to emotionally prepare yourself every time you have to take the PMT bus.
5.We all know who ~really~ has the best food. There's no point in arguing with them over this because Kata Kirr's Misal >>>>>
6.Speaking of food, Puneri snacks are TO. DIE. FOR. From Chitale’s Bakarwadi to Kayani Bakery’s Shrewsbury biscuits, Puneri snacks can take on Mumbai’s any day of the week, no matter what Rohan from Andheri says.
7.No trip is complete without a 3 am sleep-deprivation-fuelled Nal Stop poha run...
...because chaha-pohe just hits different at 3 am.
8.FC Road will always be compared to Linking Road and vice versa, whichever city you’re in.
9.It doesn’t matter what time of year your Mumbai friends arrive, Pune is always ~colder~ than they expect.
10.And Mumbai is always hotter than you think.
11.Your friends are always surprised by how you know someone EVERYWHERE you go.
12.NH7 Weekender is a whole other deal, where you basically end up partying with ALL your friend groups at once.
13.But that’s okay, because at the end of a long (read: drunken) night, you can all crash at your place without the fear of being woken up by the sounds of incessant traffic.
14.Not a visit goes by without your Mumbaikar friends making a remark about the number of Symbiosis campuses they spot around town.
15.Names of places in Pune will never not be funny to them.
16.And they will never stop making fun of you if you stay in “Pimple” anything.
17.But at the end of the day, you’re grateful for your Mumbaikar friends because they remind you of all the wonderful things you take for granted about this beautiful city.
