Nagala



Yes, the sun rises in Chennai. But on that day, I did wonder how many of us would miss it if it did not turn up one morning... Granted, we will miss the light, but who will miss the beauty?

That was just the start of the day. Seen above is the sunrise among koyambedu traffic. But, it was a different sunset for me that day. It felt nice to be there to witness the beauty away from the blaring horns and the dust and smoke.

Good people, Nagalapuram waits, for those who care to explore, roughly 2 hours north of chennai.

Fringe benefits ;) - the fishes give me a free pedicure in crystal clear waters

Closing ceremony
A day of pebble paths, unforgiving rocks, cuts and bruises, photography, nature, like minded company, pure air, pristine water and a shy sunset. I rate it first class! :)

hi Senthil, happy to help!
i have posted only the nice photos, not of the pebble paths :) going first time, i suggest you take the help of a native or go with some trekking club. CTC (chennai trekkers club) are experts in nagala trails. this place is not commercial AT ALL. not like yelagiri. I suggest you go with ctc once or twice to familiarise yourself with the terrain before going by yourself. I will send you the club's details. i have been with them more than once and I loved the way they lead.

In this warfare fought around the pouches of consumers, these kinds of kick off video games can be associated towards the initial influx of soldiers established upon Normandy in the mid 1940s. They'll likely be chance along, but they'll remove the means for the true violation. Your microscopic lense that will 'microsoft' may be set below using the 360's kick off may be really as a consequence of improved media focus the has gotten. Accurate, pressure coming from Sony's Ps3 slim can be pushing the problem of a solid release to the top associated with everyone's list, however the reality is that the Xbox will likely be close to for around the next five-years.
