58k south of Chennai is Mamallapuram, Mahabalipuram, or Mahabs. It has a very old sea shore temple & great carvings in a park not far fm the beach. It cost 60 R on the bus fm Chennai. Or you can hire a cab for around 1500R. Another 60K south of Mahabs is Puducherry. Sri Lanka is very nice. I landed and had a hotel destination. Nextime I will land and just look for a hotel,,,,,,, Look Mahabs & Puducherry up on wikitravel or something you like. Mahabs is also a surfing town and there is an invitational contest the 2nd week of Aug..waves permitting. Have Fun.

Petamin posted Bringing the family dog on the India forum on July 24, 2015:
We are planning a 3 month trip to India to evaluate a few places and see if its a fit. We're planning on "home basing" in Pondicherry, (husband's family is from there) and traveling within India. Our dog is our kid. We see that pets are not allowed in to India unless you are moving there. We THINK we are, but not sure... I'd hate to get to India only to have us turned away because paperwork wasn't right. Any suggestions, thoughts, or input on bringing a dog into India?

Does anybody know if there are any good schools around Palolem that combine high academic standards with an alternative, holistic approach for both primary and secondary level kids? Would very much appreciate any tips you could offer! Thanks so much!!! ;)

I am a US citizen living in India. I plan to go to USA for a visit. My USA driving license expired. Any one who had a similar experience advice me how to get a temporoy license to drive in USA. I was told I may not be eligible to get international driving license from India as I am a US citizen. Welcome suggestions and advice.

As soon as you go to US have some one drive you to the Department of motor vehicles and apply for a License. They give you a temporary license immediately and the permanent one in a week or two. You have to produce your expired license.

kateleyshon posted visa renewal-done in a day??? on the India forum:
Hi guys, does anybody know if by booking an appointment at an FRRO office (ie Chennai), whether it is ever possible to get a visa renewed or extended in a single day like it is in some other countries? I'm guessing not but wouldn't it be great if it were possible!

I have been a resident of Australia and now shifted to Bangalore for job purpose. I am looking for an best ICSE school for my daughter who was in 3th grade and now going to 4th grade. I heard about a International school named trio world academy. Can anyone suggest me about this school!! What about the fee structure of their ICSE syllabus ?
GeorgeBenjamin replied recently with:
My son is in 2nd grade at TRIO. We have been pleased with the school so far. He is a day scholar and has only joined this year. The parent teacher meetings are very helpful and informative. They tell us where our child needs to improve and point out his best strengths. His teacher explained about their differentiated learning approach so that he learns at his own pace. What I liked most is that my son is developing an interest towards reading and public speaking. I would like to recommend it to the parents looking for individualized attention and balanced academics and sports.
