Shops

I have already photographed a couple of the village shops but, just to give you a flavour of shopping in different parts of the country, I will post up some photos of shops. In Navsari, our nearest big town, there are hundreds of shops many of them are small and not much bigger than kiosks. There are no obvious chain stores and there is only one supermarket which is brand new.

Let's start with a bike shop, what else? No wonder Rachel Carter couldn't find a mountain bike to buy!

Typical roadside and telephone kiosk. We called Arun on his birthday from here.

'Pack it high, sell it cheap' seems to be the mantra.

There is a constant queue for petrol and these boys will sell it by the pop bottle.

    Hi Anya,I hope you’re having a really great time in India.
    I’ve now broken up from school. In the final week we made puppets for the nativity play, bags, Christmas cards and a 2009 calendar.

    The pictures look very interesting.
