The road from Pondicherry to Chidambaram
The Temple in Chidambaram
Chidambaram's Hindu Temple
The coastal road to the South
Passage in one of the villages along the road
One more Hindu Temple along the way
As usual, we attract the curiosity of the locals
The usual traffic on the road
Indians are just as curious as the Chinese... but with more "nonchalance"
The kitchen of the restaurant where we're having lunch...
... and our lunch, strictly on banana leaves and to be eaten with the hands!
Rice paddy workers
Some more usual traffic
Fruit market along the road
Firecrackers and music for a funeral
The Ambassador taxis
Fishermen village on the way
Reorganizing today's catch
The road conditions are not the best...
... but the encounters are great!
Some kilometres and many more bumps later...
Kids playing cricket
More animals than cars on this road
It's water collection time!
