      ... gave us an overview of the British rule here. The Tamil Nadu parliament now occupies these old buildings. We then visited a section of the Chennai Museum to view dozens of bronze sculptures of the 'Dancing Siva'. We recently returned 'ours' from the National Gallery as it had been allegedly stolen. Don't know why when there are hundreds already here. Sorry ! Then onto our hotel through the chaos. Even passed a road called Ghandi-Irwin Road ...

      ... isn't pronounced like that at all, but is spelt that way.

After a few dodgy U-turns, windowless buses, a family of 6 on a moped, nearly colliding with a tuk tuk and a whole motorway smiling and waving at us we arrived at the Mall. Mr taxi driver arranged to meet us in the same location we were dropped off at and to ring him when finished. The Mall was ...

      Hi all!

      I am playing a bit of catch up! Not sure where the days go but the last few have been pretty great!
