Day 5 - Pondicherry and Auroville
December 2, 2009 - Pondicherry, India
Cette après-midi je me rends à Auroville, un village fondé à la fin des années 1960 par "The Mother" (compagne francaise (!) de Sri Aurobindo, qui lui est un savant mélange de politicien, poète, maître spirituel et j'en oublie) selon un concept qui, sur le papier, fait rêver... C'est un lieu un peu hors du temps, qui se veut « le lieu d'une vie communautaire universelle, où hommes et femmes apprendraient à vivre en paix, dans une parfaite harmonie, au-delà de toutes croyances,...

Day 4 - Pondicherry (Part 3)
December 1, 2009 - Pondicherry, India
Oh my, I just went totally crazy! OK, I know I shouldn't go crazy now, 4 days after I arrived, but well I totally live up to it! I'm in a crazy beautifully charming and elegant palace of a colonial building in my best pair of jeans (which counts about 4 or 5 holes by now and looks as if I'd been wearing them for a month straight) and I just fell for the tournedos with pepper sauce. Damn, this place is great, they even have a cheese plate of 4 different french cheeses! In fact, I hesitated...

Day 4 - Pondicherry (Part 2)
December 1, 2009 - Pondicherry, India
Generally speaking , I feel a little bit uneasier than usual travelling in this country. I don't know whether it is just temporary because you can't really say I've been here for long, and it has nothing at all to do with the people or feeling unsafe or anything like this, it's rather about worrying a lot about etiquette and dos and dont's. People are really friendly, helpful and respectful so far but I guess it's more that, with all those super cool backpackers who behave like they've been...

Day 4 - Pondicherry (Part 1)
December 1, 2009 - Pondicherry, India
OK, I tried. I walked into a so-called french restaurant and ordered a "bavette à l'échalotte", in other words, a nice piece of beef! I really wanted to try this here, maybe my irrevocable tendency to break the damn rules (although that really is permitted here) or at least to walk a thin line. But it lasted for about half a minute, I cannot say otherwise but that it made me feel uncomfortable and a bit disrespectful. So I changed my order to something else I wouldn't get (or want to get)...

Day 3 - Pondicherry
November 30, 2009 - Pondicherry, India
Pondicherry. It was a nice bus ride to get here and now I'm sitting in a lovely restaurant with relaxing music and a nice breeze floating around together. I've just had another curry though I should probably take the opportunity of being here in Pondy to treat myself to a good steak since I probably xon't get another possibility before another couple weeks.
