What a gorgeous, colorful neighborhood, that also smells delicious with every step you take.
We had fun walking through all the stores. We bought henna paste so we can do our own henna’s at home. We bought sparkling decorations for your hands. We ate some street food – deep fried goodness that was well, awesome. We wandered in and out of all the shops just seeing what there was to see.
We had some traditional Indian food for dinner – and ate until we couldn’t eat another bite. One would think that we should be enormous with all the food we eat, but it just be all the walking, water drinking and sweating – because we’re not enormous.
I had been looking for something different to bring home for myself from our travels and the idea of a sari had been on my mind. We decided to go into a few shops and take a look at fabric. That was a big mistake. Walls and walls of fabric. Every color. Bright and vibrant and gorgeous.
We found a little tiny shop and entered. The man was so friendly and nice. I thought it would be ok to drape a few pieces of fabric to see what they looked like.
We decided it looked good. Rory bartered and voila, a custom sari was purchased.
A few days later we went to pick it up.
I love it.
We really loved this vibrant, colorful neighborhood! A few more pictures here.
