Travel Blogs from Chennai (Madras)
After a long long long trip we are finally here! Was able to grab a little sleep on the plane but not much can prepare your body for the huge time zone switch from the US to here. The one stop we made was in Dubai and the airport was definitely very cool.

Kanchipuram is ...

So we hit our café of choice and tried to order the usual, but the tandoor oven wasn’t being turned on until 7pm (bugger), so we ordered a snack instead and said we would return later. When we returned for the fourth time in two days, the staff all started to laugh. Presumably, we hoped, it was because we kept coming back and not for another reason we were ...
