- I woke up 6 in the morning on the next day and left my hotel room at 6.30. Went to Cidco Bus stand which is 6km away from my hotel.- I came to know that the bus which goes to Lonar would leave at 7.30. I had an ample time to observe people around. Everywhere I go I try to observe and learn from the people. They tell you something with their actions and emotions.- Bus started at 7.30. It goe through district of Jalna. Climate was good. Not too hot not too cool. It was dry though unlike Mumbai. It took 4hrs to reach to Lonar.- After reaching Lonar bust stop you need to travel for another 2km to reach at the site.- It was a humongous sight. It acts like a time machine. I was witnessing that event which happened 52,000 years ago.- Lake is almost circular in shape and it has a circumference of about 8kms.
