  • Venkatesan M.

    No one turned up except me from our group :(
    Also the sun wasn't visible today on the Horizon to capture perfect sunrise. So those who have missed this meetup (all of you :P) no need to worry, we can plan some thing later.

    After some time in the beach, I met with Curt Degler for breakfast and had a very nice chat for more than 1 hour. @Curt, Thank you so much. It was a good conversation and the pongal was good too. :)

      April 5, 2013

    • Rahul

      if possible can we move it to next weekend??

      April 5, 2013

  • sarvesh

    @venkatesh - thanks for the info.. But as I have come to know that all the buses plying in the morning just touch the town and don't go inside it.. So could u plz tell me how far is the shore from the bus drop-point?. @all - we can mail each other our contacts so that it becomes easier for all of us to co-ordinate the meet. (considering the fact that the shore will be quite a long stretch)

    April 5, 2013

    • Venkatesan M.

      I am not sure abt the distace. My guess is around 1 KM.

      April 5, 2013

  • amit kumar c.

    sorry. i am out of station.

    April 4, 2013

  • Venkatesan M.

    Curt, I was having the same thought. I think it will be ideal to meet may be by 5.30 AM? Lets hear from others.

    Sarvesh, most of the buses to pondicherry on ECR will touch Mahabalipuram. However, make sure with the conductor as some will drop you outside as they will not enter the town and you may have to walk some distance to reach the shores.

  • sarvesh

    Two of us are hell bent on attending this meetup :p.Could anyone please let me the conveyance I can avail to reach the destination at 0430 hrs? I am new to Chennai and have put up in Thiruvanmiyur. As per my understanding their are buses to Pondicherry in the morning but not to Mahabalipurram. Or if anyone is going from in and around Thiruvanmiyur and has place to accomodate the 2 of us.

    Your reply will be valuable for us. You can even drop me a mail at [masked]. My contact is [masked]
