the waiter in the restaurant was doing full justice to the idea of scurrying around, the dal was festooned [in a taste sense] with corriander....so yummy. the youghurt was bejewlled with crushed cummin and a pinch of fennel seed. H hint of cinnamon in the mixed vegeatbles as well as all the ususal suspects in a spice mix...
So much to learn taste-wise from that meal
And the paper merchant -research for "Books 'n' Blocks" our workshop with Dawn Thompson in March 2012- keep an eye on http://www.our-pukka-place.com/studio.html for details as I write them up.
Lots more pictures of our dayout in an album on Facebook
He is so funny, I love the serpentine way his neck swivels....he is always hungry and camels have very long legs so that is a lot of filling up to do!
Hoping for a bit quieter day today, we have really been running, but we will begin dyeing experiments with the dye stuff we got yesterday in Jaipur so I am not hopeful. Right now it is make a cake for the hotel, fiddle with this an that, inspect my garden it is starting to look like a green fuzz [we have our walled home garden- lots of different things I can't get in India and we have our market garden out the back to grow veg for our hotels, give friends and sell any extra]
Got to drop out and visit the Juuti wallah and give him cotton thread to see how it goes- very excited by the prospect of new shoes and we might be able to take his work further afeild.
Have a good day- Fi
