“So what’s with the French connection?”
“Do the Tamil people really speak French?”
“Global village? Really?”
“I thought only Kerala had backwaters!”
“What’s the culture scene like?”
The enticing Indian French quarter, one of the declared union territories of our country, the quintessence of French culture, Pondicherry is F5’s next experience destination. What’s more to this place you wonder? It is this compelling blend of two different cultures, one the Indian Tamil culture and the other being that of the French. To see traditionally dressed Tamil folks conversing with each other in this world acclaimed puzzling foreign language-French is indeed an over whelming cultural encounter. What adds to this experience is the mouthwatering French delicacies and the Tamil spices for your taste buds, the tranquil beaches, the architectural evinces and the yellow walls reaching every corner of your eye.
The place arranged for us to stay was really neat, clean and the people were very friendly. All travel arrangements – train, cab – and other details were organized without us having to bother about anything. Suggested travel and food places were really good. Had a great time in Pondicherry!
