Viva Pondy II

Was in Pondicherry yesterday on work
The weather was fantastic - all cloudy and drizzling through out

Saw Villianur and finally made it to Anglo French textiles, a century-old fabric shop.
Apart from furnishing, shirts and bed sheets , they also make fabrics for defence & the Paramilitary !!

On to civilian stuff- not a very huge range of bed spreads but some of the self striped sheets were exquisite. They also had that kapda for cross stich and pretty hand kerchiefs.
You can choose between the factory outlet soon after the railway crossing and a shop on Mission road. ( closed for a few hours each afternoon)

I admire the way you pump so much of shopping/info even during short trips.

That kerala resort photo looks awesome, but one small doubt..won’t the room be swamped with mosquitoes and insects coz its open next to water?

that is just the spare bed next to the pool- no mosquitos during teh day though
