Netflix, Pottermania, Sun, Sea, and Sand


Last week of December was the Winter break, and now after a week of sleeping, and eating when I please, my circadian rhythms are all over the place, and I am feeling enormously tired and jet lagged although I went no further than Chennai (about 300 km east of where I live) to my parents’ place.

Now, I have my memory card back, and so if crocodiles are your thing, here are some coming your way. I have tons of pictures as crocs are pretty easy to photograph, being as they are immobile most of the time. However, if reptiles give you the creeps, now is the time to avert your eyes and move to the next post 🙂 .

Crocodile Bank


When we visit Chennai, Crocodile Bank in Chennai is always a must-visit. The park has feeding sessions every Sunday at noon and between 4pm and 5pm in the evening, and this is the best time to visit the park.
