Hungry as we were, we returned to the White Town and had lunch at the Escape Inn, which overlooked the Promenade beach. We had crab cake and grilled fish and chicken stroganoff. It was a sumptuous meal. We decided to visit the Old Lighthouse next. Unfortunately, it was closed but the guard asked us to visit the New Lighthouse which was functional. It was a long walk to the top of the lighthouse but the view was totally worth it. Traveling by scooty on year-end proved to be a difficult task, so we walked to the next stop on our list - The Bubble Bee cafe. They served bubble waffles with ice cream. It is a must-visit place if you come to Pondicherry. We celebrated new years with our friends. While returning to our hotel everyone on the road wished each other Happy New Year. There were pretty Rangolis drawn in front of all the houses. It was a perfect start to a new year.
When we decide to visit Pondi, we thought 3 days would be too much but while leaving we realized that one can live forever in this pretty town.
