Well we arrived safely in Chennai - and I only have one word to describe this place and that is MENTAL... If you like the sound of beeping horns on chaotic/crazy roads then this is the place for you.
We got taken to our hotel by an ambassador car - which is straight out of the 50's. (pics will follow-the internet cafe has no upload facility or cover on the computer.)
Our hotel is on a crazy little street right next to loads of people just lying sleeping on the roadside Its basic and functional and the toilet experience their is much better than the one I had at the airport! Lets just say I wish I had packed my loo roll in my day pack not my rucksack that I was waiting on.!!
We've had a nice first day, well frankly it was more surreal than any other day I've had so far. While we would have been finish our last customer of the day back in the UK, we were instead trying to order some food at our hotel. Unfortunately, our tour notes were right when it stated that some of the most optimisc menu's turn out only to have one dish. This is indead what happened. I had chicken fried rice instead of the Chilcken Masala that I wanted and Tim had the Chicken Tandori with no rice lol. But hey it filled a hole.
Our proper tour starts tomorrow so we will no doubt be full of wonderful interesting facts on our next blog.
Hi to everyone and we miss you all heeps
