This was our first trip to our home state of Tamil Nadu. But this was the first complete road trip in India; first after our New England trip.
We took the early afternoon flight to Chennai. Since it has been a while since we took a flight, we gave a full Avomine to Pranav. That sure made him very cranky. But he slept well in the flight. The night was bad though. Pranav started throwing up and we had to give him Ondansetron to calm him. We really don't know what triggered it. Could be the heat, dust or a bucket of pop-corn we fed him earlier on in the day.
We started late today (around 10:30). We did not give Pranav Avomine as we don't know if he could take it after the earlier medication. That was a mistake. The stop and go traffic got to Pranav and we had to hurriedly give him Avomine on the go. After that, Pranav's mood improved dramatically and we reached Kanchipuram without further ado. In the evening we took turns to check out the sights and Pranav stayed in the room.
We gave half an Avomine to Pranav before starting. It was an event-free 1.5 hr drive to Vellore. We took turns to check out the sights during the afternoon as Pranav stayed back. In the evening, we all went to check out the Golden Temple. Pranav was very happy getting out of the room finally.
Avomine plus a 3 hr drive brought us to Puducherry. After that same turn taking sight seeing happened.
Same as previous day. Avomine plus drive to Chidambaram. Unfortunately, the Pizza dinner last night got to Aparna and she was under the weather all day. Only Manoj ended up going to Pichavaram in the evening as a result.
Avomine plus drive to Kumbakonam. Enroute we stopped at Gangai Konda Cholapuram. Pranav really liked the near empty monument (as usual). We took turns to check out the temples in town. In the evening, we all went to Daraswaram and Pranav liked that one as well.
Train back to Chennai. Finally no Avomine and still an event-free day.
Relative visiting day.
Flight back to Pune after half an Avomine.
