The final two days! :)

So we are now sitting on the M25, in slight traffic with no beeping horns, lane structure and quiet! It feels very strange! Our last few days in Chennai have been so busy – sorry for the lack of social networking activity. Thursday was again an Oasis day – the teams delivered their last English…

Loving Life in Chennai!

I can’t believe there’s only one week of this amazing Indian adventure left – I’ve become so used to the smells (good and bad!), the food (although that sneaky western meal in pizza hut yesterday was lush!) and the noise of the traffic, the auto-rickshaws and the honking car horns!
