Things I liked in Pondicherry and Mahabalipuram

I met a new friend there, loved meeting her :) Whenever you go to Pondicherry, do visit my friend Laxmi. She comes to Mankala Vinayak temple every evening to entertain everyone.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at Satsanga, this garden restaurant has lot to offer to each one. 

Paradise beach 
One can take a boat, jet ski ride from Chunnabar boathouse to paradise beach and enjoy this beauty. It's usually hot in Pondicherry, so an umbrella, sunblock and shades are mandatory. :P 

Le Cafe

 Le Cafe is a government run 24 hours cafe which has a scenic view and good food. Do try their Chicken lasagna, sandwiches and cold coffee. :)
