In August 2011, three of us travelled to Pondicherry (Puducherry), India. This was not our first time to the place but it’s remarkably special how a familiar destination can redefine our close friendships into unforgettable moments.
Pondicherry is one of India’s Union Territory with a beautiful coast line. It has a very strong influence of the French from their acquisition way back in the 17th Century. This time around, we stayed at the French Quarter and made a day’s visit to Auroville. Here are some photographs from the special escape.
