    The controlled chaos of Chennai

    My camera broke today. That's bad timing considering I'm only halfway through my visit to India. Apparently the camera problem is a known issue with the Canon Powershot, and it's probably something I will not be able to fix while here. I was able to get about 40 or so photos over the last two days. Sadly, not many of the actual office here, and none of the team members themselves. It's a shame.

    But I was able to capture one of the most unique aspects of Chennai: the street life. The traffic here is astounding. There are cars, buses, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians swarming the streets in what one of my Indian colleagues calls "a controlled chaos." I've loved my 20 minute commutes to and from the office so far in the little "auto" taxi. I did my best to take as many pictures as I could on the ride without falling out!
