Went to the airport first thing in the morning, but all flights to Mumbai are grounded.I ended up stuck at the airport for hours,before managing to get a refund from Jet Airways. I was in real trouble now,as I have no chance of getting my flight back home. By some amazing coincidence,I actually managed to get hold of Lufthansas call centre, got …

"Good morning" whooped the waves, "it's 6 am". I scrambled out of bed and opened our room to a little sit-out overlooking the 'boulevard'. Our guest house stood on what is called 'Beach road' (this road runs parallel to the coastal boundary of the town). Half the town seemed down there already! We ran down hoping to catch, both, the sunrise and …

Pondicherry - toute la France dans une ville

A travel blog entry by monsoon

This morning, I made my way from Mahabalipuram to Pondicherry, a short bus ride of 90 minutes in a quite crowded bus during monsoon-esque rainfalls. I took a riksha from my guesthouse to go to the bus stop, and thankfully my driver suggested bringing me to the express bus stop outside of the village (which is not mentioned in LP - one point less) …

... through the commune, past places like ‘solitude farm’ to the Matrimandir (big gold dome) in the middle. A man met us and told us about the history of the building of the dome and then off we went to see inside. We had to queue up outside it and take our shoes up before heading up a flight of stairs into the dome that felt not unlike entering an alien space ship. Once inside, you are not allowed to speak at all and you have to sit on white towels on marble seats to ...

... is like the 'technodrome' from 'teenage mutant ninja turtles'. They seem pretty skeptical about the whole project describing as like something from the Simpsons. It's possible to stay and work there for a little while however I decide against it. On the way back I pass a very small procession of drums. After a week without a drink, I get my first Indian bear. Kingfisher which 8%. When I walk home at 11.00pm there are children, who are about eight years old still on the ...

    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!!!
