A week in Chennai, India- 2/26 - 3/5/10

Chennai Paris Day 1 Paris day 2 Paris day 3


This is at least the 4th business trip to Chennai for Hoa!  He is familiar now with the surrounding and the people are really nice and friendly.  Chennai is such a long way from home!  It takes about 30 hours from door to door.  To get to Chennai you can fly two different routes.  Either you go the Europe route or you can go the Asian route because Chennai is kind of in the middle.  This time Hoa selected to go the Europe route so he can stop by Paris for 3 days and visit his family.


Taking a Tuc Tuc. Sometimes it is impossible to get a taxi so Tuc Tuc is an alternative.  Tuc Tuc is a 3 wheeler and it is available every where on the street and it is also very popular mode of transportation

Supposed to be a Thai appetizer but we have never seen it until you get to India.
