We spent Christmas eve camping in the mountains with friends. Udhewadi, a village on the base of Srivadhan and Manranjan forts, is a popular site for trekkers, with villagers hosting people for the night. A dozen of us drove down from Mumbai, just in time to witness a brilliant sunset on the plateau. Later, we lit a bonfire, and had a barbecue party. The dinner was served by our hosts in the village. The morning was spent lazing, with some dancing to raise the temperature a bit. A satisfying outing with a fun bunch.
