A few phone calls, a little bit of planning and date shifting and it was done. The vibrant town of Pondicherry it was. So we converged from the north, the east and the South at Chennai airport and after a delicious and mandatory sambar-rice lunch we set off for the "educational" trip. We were on a low budget trip as always, so from Chennai we hopped on a local bus and proceeded to the hip and happening Pondicherry.
