Going to Auroville tomorrow for a day trip and at some point further up the coast to Mahabalipuram where there are lots of cave cliffs.
Just a short email to let you know that i am in Pondicherry at the moment for around a week. Instead of getting a train that takes hours and hours, we got a cheap internal flight (similar to Easy jet) to Chennai and then a taxi to Pondicherry. However after about a 3 hour delay at Trivandrum, i now know why they are so cheap! Arrived in Pondicherry really late. The city used to be a French colony, so everyone still speaks French and you can get decent bread and coffee. The streets seem very French too with trees and shuttered buildings lining them. I've also used my French which is quite surprising considering i'm in India! There are alot of French tourists here too.
