the ruins of mahaballipuram

from pondicherry we bused up the coast to charming mahaballipuram (aka mamallapuram), with luke’s recommendations.  in addition to more great seafood and ocean breezes, we sampled the ruins of empires past.  we also went swimming on a quiet bit of beach, our only company a few cows, a handful of foreigners, and some indian (male) ogglers.  one guy had the nerve to take photos of the foreign women, presumably to show off to his friends and ideally not to post on the internet.  if you find somewhere some sketchy shot of me yelling at the camera man to go away and leave us alone, it’s from mahaballipuram.
