Back of the Blog - Savouring Pineapples on way to Shillong

Back of the blog. Here we will share tit-bits and snippets on India Travel which may be useful for a traveller in India. It may be some new information about the place, a new cuisine one can explore, a bit of history, a funny anecdote or a good travel book. Anything connected to Travel in India. 

You get some of the best pineapples in Meghalaya state in Eastern India. These pineapples are huge and juicy.

When you drive from Guwahati to Shillong - a picturesque three hour drive - look out for small shops selling pineapples on the roadside. Pick up a big one and ask the lady selling it to cut it for you - it is generally ladies who do business in Meghalaya - and she will do it smilingly. Khasis, the tribe inhabiting this part of Meghalaya are friendly and jovial people.

Yours truly - in jacket - selecting the juicy fruit
So next time when you drive on this road, don't forget to taste the pineapple.
