Caroline’s First Shopping Trip

DSCF6518Bethany was ready for another outing so we packed up the backpack and the baby-carrying front pack and headed down the trail to the bazaar. We visited many shops and finally stopped for a snack. Do you see the decorative ceiling?DSCF6517 DSCF6516 DSCF6515Got to have the gulab jamun which is a lot like a donut hole in a sugar and rose water syrup, or a pancake with too much syrup.

Then a must try is the little meat and potato pocket with cilantro sauce. It was quite tasty. To round out the snack was the standard drink, a hot glass of chai.


I’m not sure what all the other dishes wDSCF6512ere but they certainly make nice pictures, don’t they? You can easily see them since they are UNwrapped!


You will notice, of course, the ever present Coca-Cola!  This snack bar was quite spacious compared to many of the other establishments I’ve seen on the three-mile strip of businesses.

A stop at the Kashmir store for a few gifts to bring home. And, I had to get a picture of the smallest tailor shop I’ve ever seen! All you see is what there is! (middle picture) But, it is enough room to take care of business.

The cobbler shop was another stop. They have made many shoes for Bethany and Abe and wanted to meet Caroline. If I were going to be here longer, this would be the place to get some boots made. Just take them a picture of what you want and ….boom…there it is! Oh, well, maybe next time!

And, a few more photos of the ever present MONKEYS! (Just think of them as squirrels.)


They were climbing up poles, running across wires and just sitting in trees along the road watching the shoppers. Yep, pretty much like squirrels, real big squirrels!
