We got an SMS from Indigo stating that we should plan on being at the airport early, as today was Republic Day and there was extra security check. So we booked the Uber early, around 7 am. The guy reached in time and we loaded all our bags in the boot. The first thing that … Read more Stinking Driver, Slowest Frisk & a Mistaken Bag 🙂
As we walked back to our Airbnb after having breakfast, I found this tree that seems to be used as a TV tower :). The wires aren’t electrical but seem to be either telephone or the internet or cable TV wires …. maybe the tree also needs to be hooked into the net. 🙂 :).
For breakfast today Latha took us to Sangeetha’s on G.N.Chetty Road. We enjoyed the food and felt happy after the meal as we also managed to catch up with Latha. Since the restaurant is really close to our Airbnb, we decided to walk both ways. As soon as we got out of the restaurant after … Read more Sweeping up a Dust Cloud !!
…. It shouldn’t be difficult to guess. Every time I have entered this airport, I have either picked a fight during the security check or the boarding gate gets changed at will or the food outlets will not even acknowledge your existence or some alpha male (*&$#@) will strut about letting his wife carry five … Read more The Most Disappointing Airport in India ?
I have the distinct pleasure of being on the first Lufthansa flight that allowed wifi in the air… but I have never used the wifi at airports in India. The first time Krishnan and I used airport wifi very effectively was at the Bangkok airport as we transited through it in 2016 to visit Laos. … Read more Sri Krishna Mayam … & Airport WiFi

Just 16 months back, the Chennai floods happened…. nearly 1500+ people lost their lives and the city was submerged for four days. It caused untold damage and while the citizens rose up to the occasion and helped each other, the then Government of late Jayalalitha dawdled. There were caught unprepared and they caught the citizens … Read more Chennai, Hyderabad and the water crisis!
Yesterday we took the not-so-correct decision of going to George Town … all because the last time we went there with Nachi and Kousalya, we found the dried fruits (raisins, figs etc) and cashewnuts that we got here ended up being cheaper and of better quality than what we found in my beloved Delhi :). An … Read more By George – All for a few dried figs !
A few weeks back, we decided to go for our morning walk to OMR so that we could walk longer. Krishnan, Amma and I took the car and parked it near Taramani and started our walk. A few things that just didn’t work for us – the service road was uneven, so we had to … Read more Chennai Walks – the Poster city
For the past few days, Amma and I have stopped getting into the ill-kept park and use the wide roads that criss cross all over Kamakoti Nagar for our morning walk. It gives us a longer walking path and also fewer people jostling in a small space. Since we use the inner roads there isn’t … Read more Chennai walks – Baby Snake
