Chennai, a stop on the way to Calcutta. Chennai is the 4th biggest city of India but a friendly city from what I have read. Arrived in the morning and took the train to the India Institute of Technology (IIT) where Katrin studies and where I could stay for a night. It is strictly forbidden as a man to enter the woman's hostel on the campus so I found a male friend and spent the night there. His name is Nino from Germany and he really helped me out.



In this one day it would be interesting to witness a university class and Katrin took me to a class of 'Refrigeration and Airconditioning’ which was interesting but a little bit boring. Afterwards went into town for some lunch and some sightseeing. Temples, a church, walking along the beach and in the evening some food and drinks at the Comfort Hotel. A well spent day and good to get some energy for the 27 hour train ride to Calcutta the next day.
