15. Day O' Shopping

Today we had a full day of shopping! We started early and went down to the famous commercial area of our city. I took a few pictures to show you what a little shopping looks like here.

This picture is a street view of one of the busiest shopping areas in our city. But, this was very early (10:30 a.m.) and not a lot of shops were open nor people out and about.

This is the "Dupatta Center." We stopped here to find a few scarves and shawls. Look at the selection!

Bangle shops are so fun! There is such a selection, and you can get the guys that work there to match your bangles combination to the shirt or suit you just bought!

Finally, this picture shows you how skillfully people run businesses from their bicycles. This guy sells coconut water to hot and thirsty shoppers. Apparently, it's "good for digestion" and "for when you are overheating." But, then again, most things are, according to nationals. I, personally, think it's disgusting!

FYI: The coconut water guy is just one example of a traveling/roadside businessman. I'll post one day about the many things you can buy on the side of the road. It will amaze you.

Hey B-
I forgot you were doing these until a couple of days ago, but I've caught up since then. I'm enjoying the daily activity posts. You've been very informative, yet not boring, which is a very special skill. Kudos.
