Hotel Nice, Pondicherry Meh
Pondicherry was a bit of a let down. Except for the names of the streets, there really wasn't much French about the town. I expected cafes and bistros. There were none. Even the promenade was a let down. In the evening, there were thousands of people walking on the promenade but there weren't quaint restaurants to sit and people watch. The hotel was nice enough. The air conditioner worked well and was a welcome relief from the heat and humidity. The shower and toilet were a little funky in their open design. The breakfast was simple but sufficient--croissants were stale.
