Where I stayed
L'Escale Pondicherry
Read my review - 5/5 stars

Flag of India  , Pondicherry,
Tuesday, October 8, 2013

Ok, I clearly have dropped off the motorcycling bit of this trip but I really really am leaving tomorrow - I promise.

I've had a fabulous time here in Pondicherry but I'll be back on the road tomorrow morning.

The rest has done me good and I'm now feeling excited about cracking on and making it to the southern most point of India. I've met some great people whilst here and thank them for their company and hospitality. The hotel here really ought to be renamed Hotel California and I could quite easily see myself happily kicking around here for several months.  Given the fact that whilst here I was starting the owner's newly acquired Royal Enfield for him I thought I might get offered a job, Yes A JOB Mr Jones, a JOB!!!!!!

Anyway, the mighty impulse is serviced,  has a full tank of fuel and just needs me to load up and start riding again.

The humidity  is starting to build up and the monsoon is clearly heading this way. Given the water damage to the impulse the last time I think it very wise to try and keep a few days ahead of it.

Safe healthy and continued happy travels to those I've met here - you know who you are!

Going soft maybe but my 'humour' (?) remains consistent (ly bad)
