Puducherry travelogue: What to eat, where to stay, and when to visit the pristine paradise

It had rained the previous night. It was 9:30 am. The bus that would take us to Puducherry was about to leave in an hour. We were in 10 kilometres away, navigating through narrow lanes, in an alien city, driven by a man who couldn’t understand us, and who seemed to be harbouring a personal grudge against Google Maps.

There are some big booths on display on the floor of the trade show at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, but in a quiet (relatively speaking, of course) corner of the show two graduate students from the University of Tokyo and Hosei Univeristy are showing off a sweet little piece of technology.
