    A little bit of French in India

    A delightful home with a French touch! The sitting room is filled with art, art and more art. Patricia the owner used to own a shop with art but she now has them in her home -guest house. Every room has a little India in it .Fresh, warm, friendly, comfortable... In the heat we found it comfortable just sitting in admiring art. A beautiful court yard were the kitchen is located. Patricia and her son Oliver who speak French run this little heaven on Francois Martin street. The colours are rich and great for the senses. Enjoyed chatting with both Oliver and Patricia, Highly recommended!!!

We were craving some western food, and found a dominoes and had pepperoni pizza :) After a good night sleep we headed for the beach again, but stumbled across an internet cafe , we managed to organise transport and hotels for our next destination Chennai. Pondicherry is a lovely stop over place, not much touristy stuff , but a lovely place full of cafes and beautiful buildings, I'm glad we didn't skip it. Much Love Han ...

Eventually he became the head of the African department. I met Vithal in Rome in 1971 when I was still in the Jesuits and he arranged for me to meet Frederico Fellini and spent a night with him shooting the film ROMA for the sequence around the coliseum. Next year he came to ...

    ... samadhi. Not being his follower, it felt a little strange but with everything else in India, you just go with it.

    On our walk to a French bakery, we stopped at the beach and just happened upon an international yoga competition. Contestants performed required poses and a panel of judges assigned scores. It was incredible to see difficult poses that I have only seen in photos expertly executed before my eyes. The crowd was so enthusiastic that ...

    ... inspiration, purpose in life.. So naturally I’ve met some truly intriguing and wonderful characters here!

    India it isn’t an easy trip to take. In fact, it’s a lot of work, learning and self-reflection every single day. The world doesn’t function the same here, and you can’t expect it to. In the west, you’d never see a family of 5 on a moped in rush hour traffic, wearing slippers and no helmets. You’d never wait an hour for your ...

    It’s not easy to get here. This country is still largely remote, with the pace of technology slowed by their incomes. In the mountains of Munnar, you wont have internet, and what comes as an annoyance to some was a relief for me. ...
