India, the land of all possibilities and unexpected encounters...
Pondicherry kept popping up around the corner of random conversations and I started becoming curious to visit the former French territory as well as Auroville. I booked myself a night train on the way there and an night bus on the way back, to experience both quintessential ways of travelling in India, though thinking it’d be more fun if I had a travel companion…
Two day before leaving Rashika and Param came to The Yoga House. As the good host that I am, I showed them around, explained the concept to them and the benefits of yoga, going on and on so they end up offering me to sit and share some chai with them. My trip to Pondy came up during our chat and Rashika mentioned that she’d been wanting to go for a while. I heard myself respond “Do you want to come?” and she said “YES!”
Next thing I know, we had a blast in Pondy!
Two gourmandes on the road, enjoying French food (first croissant in 6 months!), walking around the typical old town and its beautiful French-inspired houses, the busy market around the old clock, Lakshmi temple where
the elephant by the same name blesses you if you’re kind enough to feed her, Aurobindo ashram and the promenade full colorful carts of all sorts and snacks…

Merci Celine :) Though it doesn't take a good photographer to take great pictures in India! xx
