Nothing to do

How can it possibly be the case that there is “nothing to do” in Chennai? Of course, in any given place with a laptop and a reasonably fast internet connection there are more than enough things that can keep me occupied any number of hours, but leave that aside- Madras is supposedly one of the most “cultural” cities in this country. Surely there’s more to do than whine at the prices of beer in the clubs and dip your feet in the ocean at Besant Nagar Beach?

I have decided that next semester-my last semester- is going to be 4 months of “exploring Madras”. Which essentially means that at least every two weeks I’m going to try and find something to do here in Chennai that I can’t find in…most other places, at least. I have no idea how to do this yet, so any sort of suggestions are eagerly solicited. Given that I’m going home tomorrow this is a really bad time to make this decision, but… oh, I’ll just re-blog it then.
