After not managing to make Ken’s recommended visit to Mahabalipuram last time I was here, I made it this time. 🙂
The Mighty Deerstalker is back for 2008. Get your entry in now. I’ve got my place, and this year I’m planning to camp over, possiby with my beautiful girlfriend if she can be persuaded. 🙂
Next year’s Edinburgh Half is on March 16th, which makes doing both events much more feasible. No camping at the end of it, just a nice run around Musselburgh Racecourse.
One of the most popular ways of getting around Chennai, and other Indian cities, is by auto. These are like motorised trikes, and the drivers are masters of weaving in and out the traffic. It looks quite good fun when you’re in a big car, but it gets quite interesting when you’re in one, with the driver on some kind of mission … which they generally are.
Here are two videos of racing around Chennai in the evening rushour, on our way to see a film. All the horn tooting is just the way traffic goes, and is more like a conversation than anger at other road users. Video 1 (10MB) and video 2 (5MB), both in 3GP format, so needing Quicktime to view. Enjoy!

I’ve also got some videos of the crazy traffic. They’re in 3gp format, so you will need something like Quicktime to view them. Each video is over 1MB, so give it a minute for downloading. Here’s the links: video 1, video 2 and video 3.
