    ... 2 had a team of guys welding and working away. They had a big order in process which needed to be done before the Pongal festival. He said he could make our design but he could not start our project until after the 3-day holiday period was over.

    It was a nail biter to keep up with the guy through traffic as we weaved our way to one shop after the next. We ended up at Balajee's office without a solution for the rack. ...

    ... a little dawdling at a bus stop, without being able to identify any bus heading towards Kodambakkam (where our hotel is), we gave up and got a tuk tuk.

    ... buildings on cobbled narrow streets with French bakeries & colourful trees all a-bloom! I know there's a big open sewer going through the middle with the usual stray dogs, garbage & smell of sour hot tarmac & poop but it is a very pretty place & makes a very nice walk.
