INDIA 2013   14th January - 18th FebruaryFor other India pics Click here

My visit was similar to the last few years.
I was met in Chennai by my very good friend Moin; we went to a nearby Trident Hilton hotel and then, the next day, by car to Tirupati, near the temple hill town of Tirumula, where I stayed for five weeks, teaching in Sri Venkateshwara University [SVU]. As usual I stayed in the SVU Guest House, 3km from town on the Bangalore road. I was the guest of Professor Sai Gopal, Head of the Virology Department. I gave a total of about 24 lectures and tutorials in the Virology Department and 8 lectures iin the Biochemistry Department.
The University provided accomodation and subsistence, and all other expenses for the visit were provided by the Society for General Microbiology [UK] from their Overseas Development Fund.
My camera is a Canon Power Shot SX40IS, having 35x optical zoom.
