BTW - Love your signature!
Thanks. Signature is just personal feeling and I try my best to emulate it.

What exactly is the priceless look you got? or you are welcome types? The swimming pool is so tempting.

Pondi pics are great. The night moon shot is superb!

The look was more like - You have to be kidding me! (added with) where the hell do you think you are, some cheapo motel? (with a sprinkle of) gosh - if you don't have the money they why do you even come here...

Hi

Appreciations for posting the great pictures of the French colony. The wonderful rocky beach and the french type buildings and the planned streets and finally our Manakular's Elephant on the whole nd the trunk. Do continue with another travelogue of your past present or the future ones.

One interesting note (rather cautionary) about Pondichery is, you need to learn the skills to drive/ride on the footpath because you can see people walking upto the middle of the road & then start thinking why they were here & then consider the options of going back from where they started or crossing the road. Next one being, the cyclists pedaling on the right most lane. You've gotta believe me on this or experience yourself!!!

Such a horrible place & I would even say worse than Mumbai or Bangalore too. But one good thing is the roads are awesome, no potholes, no cracks & is comparable with GQ's fit & finish. A classic example on the outcome of what could happen on good roads with people having no road sense.

@Navan / Sami / Ranjith - Thanks for the appreciation
@ Sami - Shame on you - you've been thrice to Pondy to drink but never to Mahabs . Anyway - on a serious note, you should really check out Mahabs - its nice!

I agree with you completely. The road sense in this city is quite alarming. Whenever I have been there, I make it a point to park my car somewhere safe and then just walk around. I would suggest that to most people as well.
