My parents returned, safe and sound. Surprisingly nothing spectacular happened on the trip back--no bridges washed out, no delayed flights, no missed connections, no snarky (nor snarly) flight attendents nor passengers. They, of course, brought me a few prezzies...
Anyway, I told my mum about my ankle and she and my dad bought me a beautiful hand-carved cane. I tried to take some piccies of details--to the left, a wolf- or fox-like creature and to the right, an elephant (my very favourite creature on this planet--if I could keep some as pets, I would).
India is known for many things and silk is one of them. To the left, a scarf and to the right a new sari for me!
Now, this is a foodblog, so of course there are few things they picked up from the markets: cashewnuts, nutmeg, star anise and mace.
