Day 221: French India

A travel blog entry by adventurenonni

... also chained and had a guy sitting on top of it with a hook. I didn't go inside the temple but Kaete did. She said it was nice and there were a lot of beautiful statues inside. After this we walked back down to the beach and sat by the water for a little while. During this time I googled the ancient palm leaf scrolls that Marc is insisting I go to. Somewhere in India is my scroll which was written over 2000 years ago and has my destiny on it. Ok I am a little intrigued, but it could ...

I chatted with the pool attendants who were from Meghalaya and were brought on training by Mahindra holidays.

What a drive. Not a very good driver. Constantly braking and then full gas. Brake-gas-brake-gas. Annoying! And it made it a lot easier to get carsick, joy. We had one stop on the way, that's all. Just to go to a stinky bathroom. Not much sleep at all. But luckily the bus had AC! We didn't see too much, cause it got dark pretty quickly. Time passed and suddenly the bus driver started yelling "Pondicherry! Pondicherry!" Poof! We jumped out of our seats, hurried to get ...
