Mahabs and Pondicherry

After a few days in Chennai we ventured down the coast to Mahabs (Mahabalipuram) where there are ancient stone carvings and a shore temple. It would have cost us $5 to see the temple, so we opted to just see the stone carvings. It was a rainy day, but we got some great pics of Ryan and the kids on this huge stone hill with a boulder (if you can call it that) named Krishna's Butter Ball.

Further down the coast was Pondicherry, a former French colony. This is where a lot of pottery and paper is made. I have very few pictures of our time here since a lot of the places we went were affiliated with an ashram where photography wasn't allowed, but I did get a few shots of the house where we stayed and of one of the rooftop restaurants we ate at on January 6th. It just happened to be my grandma's birthday, so I ordered Quiche Lorraine in her honor (since her name is Lorraine). It was wonderful!
