a tale of three Pondicherries

Recently, I was looking at a map of southeast Asia, and the city of Pondicherry caught my eye on the northeastern coat of India. The problem was, this seemed too far north for the Pondicherry I'd heard of, the former French colony on the southeastern coast of India.

So I turned the page to check the full map of India, and no sooner had I learned that there were two Pondicherries on the east coast of India than I noticed a third one on the west coast.

So there you have it -- three Pondicherries
