Mahabalipuram – Stuck in Customs

Some India Photos

How about a quick 3-batch of photos from India?


One place I entered did not allow any cameras at all, so I had to make do with my Android phone. Here’s a panorama made of multiple shots while inside Madurai.

Chennai Quadcopter at Night

Here’s a late-night quadcopter flight near Chennai. Usually, these are more noisy, but we were blessed with a still evening.

Mahamallipurum Detail

Beautiful details on the towers in Mahamallipurum. I could stare at them for hours.

Day 10 – Holy Disciple Bones and the Shiva Temple

The day started with us getting off the train at 10 AM to begin our adventure in Channai, which used to be called Madras. I know Madras well from all my days playing Civilization! Anyway, we began at the Cathedral of St. Thomas were we saw his remains then drove on to a place called Mahabalipuram. Who has ever heard of Mahabalipuram? Who can even say it? Well apparently everyone here can and they had great trouble whenever I tried to say this out loud. I’d just get a lot of confused looks.

Tomorrow, we head on to Puducherry to visit more sights…

Indian ladies love taking photos with Isabella and Scarlett because they look so different.
