So, my return trip to Madurai (back to school Monday here too!) took me through Chennai for the first time.
First impressions? It’s a city that’s hopping. Now, you can hardly do one of the world’s largest cities justice in a mere 24 hours, so instead I just went to the seaside…
As urban beaches go, Marina Beach is big, very big… so big, that Chennai police estimated 1.8 million people were here to welcome in the New Year a few days ago. It was a little quieter for my visit.
