Thanks Abhi. Hint taken, and shall post more in future. Actually, even a trip home gives a lot of scope for a write-up and pics.

Rahul, a simple search on Google would show you how it needs to be done.

A pic of my steed which has been an integral part of the trip, braving it out in the sun (as against his usual covered parking at home) as we enjoyed our vacation.

Benny, apologies for coming here late (better late than never right?). Awesome pic and thanks, thanks a ton.

Why is that I find Adobe CS3 a complicated thing to work on? I tried for about a day and finally gave up. I did google for help and rather found some thing called PAINT.Net and it's easy to use for me.

The pics are awesome as always. And when is the next trip and where?

Cheers,
Jai

Thanks for reviving this thread, Jai and Magesh. Suddently it feels like it was ages ago that i put down this travelogue!

As you rightly said, the French street names have a unique charm about them for sure.

@benzb29....Initially, i thought we would get to see Mahabs as well, but it was not to be. Wifey had has hopes high, but they were crushed, when we realized we needed to take a left towards Chengalpattu much before we reached Mahabalipuram.
the junction from where u took left to go to kanchipuram via chengalpet, is only few kms may be 5 kms from mahabalipuram. u could have asked the people at toll gate. but mahabs is worth for another trip (one day), if u havent been there before. may be coupled with chennai trip, if you are planning a three days trip.

Thanks for the info, benkey2. Not knowing how much far ahead Mahabs was, is one thing, the other being that we had informed my friend that we would meet him, and so kinda had to rush. :(

I have been to Mahabs in the year '99, or was it 2000, which was ages ago. Will definitely want to go there sometime.
