Chennai

Last day in India!

I left Pondicherry the morning by bus, heading toward the big Chennai. I had my last Indian adventures with local buses and the challenge of finding a cloak room. A big walk in the city and an hour of train later, I was in the airport spending my last rupees.

Strange feeling leaving India. I was really getting use to this country of paradoxes. The richness of its culture and architecture against the poverty of a large part of its population. Golden temple and tire mark in cow dung. Beautiful women in their colorful saris bare feet in the dust.

Thali, dosa, lassi, dal, chapati, massala chai, aloo gobi, porotta... bye bye to all this food.

I've been lucky to meet Indian people who opened their home to me and with whom I shared wonderful moments. I also met some good fellow travelers, nice talks and great fun.

I haven't seen everything for sure but I had a good overall view of this continent size country, its warm people and its wonders.
