India - Day 1 pictures

I finally have some pictures loaded onto the site. Chennai is the 4th largest city in India with nearly 10 million people in the area, yet along streets it is common to see cattle walking, or even pulling wagons. This is right along side the cars, bus, trucks etc. on the street.

The hotel I'm staying at is located where a Dutch fort was in the 1700's. There are still little remants of the fort on the hotel property.

And yes, it is a resort hotel. Here is the view from my room (looking east). The building in the foreground is the poolside bar at the hotel pool and in the background you can see the ocean. And a special picture for Ade, the auto rickshaw, three wheels, no doors and crazy drivers (well actually all drivers here are crazy but that's another story).
