New Delhi, India
July 7, 2002
My pals and I were on student budgets (read shoestring), so we couldn’t splurge on sapphires and rubies, but we bought some really nice souvenirs- very colourful little wooden masks (they’re called `garas’- supposed to bring you luck), tiny painted wooden elephants, and lovely batik wall hangings. All quite affordable (within Rs 500 for two little elephants, a mask and a wall hanging), and very good quality.
