Business Trip to India – Day 5 (last day)

Today is my last day in Chennai for this boot camp.

I bought some gifts to bring something home. The elephant below is for me. There is a second little elephant inside that one and the whole elephant is made of stone. Cool.

I’m really happy to have my taxi drive. It’s a jungle for me.

 

This evening they visited a temple with me. Here a photo after that.
