Pondicherry and around
This is my first real 'trip' down south. Put a weekend to good use while in Chennai on some office work. Met up with an old friend, and took an evening bus to Pondicherry. Next morning, we hired a motorcycle (Pulsar 150 V2), and roamed around Pondicherry and Auroville. Didn't carry my SLR. All pics were shot from my faithful 4 Mp Kodak P&S.
Some photos from the day ride...

In search of beaches where I can ride on, I found this...
Finally found a beach where I can ride along. But getting there was no easy task...
But once I got there, it was an old dream fulfilled!
Won't forget this moment, ever!
Don't know when I'll get a chance to do this again!
The sanctum Sanatorium at Auroville
Found another beach, had a dip and a swim, and the day was over before I realized ...
Roamed around in MG road to spend the evening, had dinner, and caught a bus back to Chennai.
