    ... had a lovely salad lunch there (oh my god, greens!) with juice. Back on the bus all the way to Pondicherry, the largest French colony in India. We did a quick stop at an ashram in the city, where the aforementioned Mother was interred. We then went for a walk along the beach area, which was more footpath, dirt and huge rocks than sand.
