Instagram Roundup: My Daily Life in Chennai

My home base for the seven weeks I spent in India working for The Travel Scientists was Chennai, formerly known as Madras. Chennai is the fourth-largest city in India and the capital of the southern state of Tamil Nadu on the eastern coast. Despite its population, it’s not as popular with travelers as the larger, northern cities, and that is exactly why I enjoyed the days that I spent there.

Because there’s not a lot “to do,” I didn’t feel like I needed to accomplish anything or check anything off of a list. Instead, I walked to the same chai stand every morning, bought fruit at the same market and established a little routine around town. I left feeling that I got a brief glimpse into what life is like as a local. Here are some scenes from my daily strolls around town, as seen on Instagram.
