We will spend the new two weeks in the city of Pondichéry. In case you haven't heard of it, was a French colony during close to 300 years and it is only in 1962 that India took over the territory. Why spend two weeks here ? I guess we missed the croissants and baguettes too much the last few months. More seriously, we were in need of a rest and the small coastal city seems the right place for it.  (click on pictures for high res) Leica M9 with 35mm Lux Asph at F1.4, 1/180, ISO640
