Chenay Bay Beach Resort, St. Croix, US Virgin Islands,
Airfares to the Caribbean from the US and Canada are quite
inexpensive at the moment and 80/85 degree Farenheit weather with
palm trees is very welcome, so this is a good time to visit St.
Croix. This is a family oriented resort on the ocean with
bungalows, a private beach, pool and restaurant and a shuttle to
Christiansted, a charming little town. There are less
expensive places available, but this is attractive because the whole
package is provided in a pretty, quiet setting. American citizens do
not need a passport to go to St. Croix, but identification is
required on the return trip. Dollars are used and English is spoken
everywhere. Tel: 1-800-548-4457, email@example.com

The Bookshop & the Landmark bookshop in Spencer
Plaza in Chennai are both recommended for Tamil & English books,
particularly those on Tamil literature. Spencer Plaza is one
of Chennai's biggest & best shopping malls. R. S.
Kanchipuram is a day trip from Chennai and is THE place to
buy sarees. The whole town is involved in weaving the sarees
in their homes and the prices are significantly less even than in
Chennai. The drive of about 50 miles takes one past several
interesting old temples that one can stop & visit. R. S. 3/03
