Indo-French Architectural Stroll
Pondicherry is best seen on foot or on a bicycle. The clean streets of the French Quarter (only open to two wheelers) is quiet and ripe for exploration. Wide courtyard open and close as locals on bicycles slip in and out of life within. Yellows and Grey's dominate the color palette of this neighborhood, but the vibrant influence of India seeps in in places, both apparent in the paint selection and the foliage. Vendors sell coconut water on the corners, dogs meander the bicycle-lined streets and sea breezes slip in to greet you on perpendicular streets.
