Indian Chinese, of course. I always found the Chinese Chinese found outside Indian unpalatable!!!

Thanx HVK

Shinkos still has that board hanging around,but frankly for the last couple of years it has been Stinkos rather than Shinkos!!

The only guys making a real killing in Ooty are the Nahar guys,very well marketed while standards are just average and prime location.The Ooty Villa Park(Dasaprakash) used to serve the best dosas in town,sadly thats also closed down because of trade union problems,there really is a big shortage of good places to eat in Ooty now a days,save for the roadside joints where good food is a gamble!

I wanted to try out the Cafe Sidewalk (I think a part of Nahar) where they offer the wood fired pizza. Heard a lot about it from friends.

When the car was parked in Ooty,a person came up to me and asked me if I was a member of TBHP,thanx to the sticker on the rear of the car,and he narrated to me his sob story of how unsuccessful he has been in getting a membership into TBHP and that how TBHP rocks and how genuine the place is etc etc,I just sympathised with him and went my way!!!:(

Nice little travelogue. Short and sweet. And the deer in the middle of the road was really cool.

Ranjith calling Ranjit (how does that suit for a new movie name )

Fantastic Travelogue. Nice captures from your camera. Keep 'em rolling.
