Chettinad Food

I would not have walked into the Chettinad Restaurant if I would not have been venturing along the T. Nagar Street that sultry afternoon. I was somewhat preoccupied with the documentary on Japan, where they make your Sushi in front of your table, in all acrobatic ways of cooking as possible. I had little clue they did in India too, less the acrobats included. So, I walked in to try Chettinad Food at the Virudhunagar Chettinad Restaurant.

Traveling for another 20 minutes, we entered a place that suddenly changed in landscape. For a moment, it felt as if we have moved through a time portal from present to past. What surrounded us was an iconic old city that dated back to 300 A.D. Here’s what we discovered walking through the Art City of Patan.

Boudhanath Stupa

At the heart of the busy streets of Kathmandu is the monumental Boudhanath Stupa or the Boudha Stupa. The elaborately decorated facade almost hides everything behind the cover, even the hums of the chanting inside. Entering through the gates of the complex, the first thing that meets you is the meditative eye of the Buddha, from the towering Stupa in front.

“He who would travel happily must travel light.” – Antoine de St. Exupery

And for some reason, if he can’t, he must find ways to get lighter to travel happy!

One of the most annoying things about traveling to any place is the one day or half day layovers, which are not as long enough for you to step into a hotel nor short enough for you to drag on with your baggage.

In Delhi, however, the airport line metro comes up with the solution to this challenge. I have happened to mention a few times how you can use the services of the Delhi Airport Line Metro to get your luggage on the flight beforehand, so that you are ‘hands free’ to explore the city.

In this post, let’s find out some of the ways you can do a ‘no baggage’ tour to New Delhi.
