Tamil Nadu - People

Hi and welcome.

This is the penultimate posting of our holiday in India and is dedicated to the people of Tamil Nadu.

One person who made our holiday very special was Ramesh, our driver. Ramesh was the perfect companion. He was always professional, completely reliable, looked out for things that would interest us even if not on the itinerary, friendly and had a good sense of humour. He was a great companion who over the 12 days that we were together became our friend. If you ever go to Tamil Nadu and want a driver contact Indian Panorama and ask for Ramesh. But book early as he is in great demand!

This is a picture of Ramesh with Daniela.

Enjoy the photos and in two weeks the final posting which is on rural Tamil Nadu.
