I went to the Makemytrip counter and dropped my bag as I had few hours before my next flight. Visited relative for dinner in Hitec City and I missed the bus.
With spare time before next bus. few photos of the below:

Finally bus arrived, I had purchased the bus ticket earlier.

Hyderabad Metro under construction. The interesting experience I had was unable to find a public phone in the city as everyone is carrying mobile phone. As I didn't have a local phone I had to search around and find change to call. Got a rickshaw after alighting from bus and getting direction after finding local call phone. and soon reached the address.
I hope you enjoyed the report.
Thanks for reading.
Jet Airways flight was chosen as my connecting flight was with Tiger Airways. As I had relative in Hyderabad, I was able to rest and dine before next flight. Jet Airways service was satisfactory, Crew interaction was minimal. Meal was ok except for the roti which was hard. Being short flight, entertainment was non existent being a no-frill route. In those days wi-fi was not available on board.
Overall a satisfactory flight.
