The Zombie Brigade
December 17, 2009 – Day 357 – Chennai, India
Got into Chennai around 7am and were met by the Zombie Brigade at the central bus stand. The rickshaw drivers were more than ready to take us into town and they were so competitive it was like a pack of zombies fighting over the last human morsel.
We negotiated the rate down from the starting Rs. 350 to R. 100 for the 8km rickshaw ride. It was raining when we arrived and we nearly froze in our shorts and tank tops on the way to town! Quite a change from Goa and Kerala’s pleasant warm weather.
We stayed at the Paradise Guest house for Rs 300, a bit much, but it’s a good base of operations for the next few days. Since it was rainy and cold, we confined ourselves indoors to watch some TV movies.
