Khan Market

Yesterday I went to khan Market in Delhi. It's where the ex pats shop. It's quite nice and calm. I bought a very simple but nicely made top in Fabindia. From the Fabindia website.
Fabindia is India's largest private platform for products that are made from traditional techniques, skills and hand-based processes. At Fabindia we celebrate India, and endeavour to bring all that we love about India to customers around the world.' They also support a school with over 1000 students.

Unfortunately I got a warning about watching what I eat and drink. I let my guard down in a restaurant that said they use filtered water. I'm now recovering from a mild bug. Fortunately it's on a day that we aren't travelling. Unfortunately it's the day the rest of the group are going to the Craft Museum. Oh well- another time.

Yesterday I also discovered how cheap books are here. I bought about 5 books all about $8 each including
I don't seem to be able to turn it sideways 


  1. Hi Clare. I'm looking forward to visiting Fabindia myself, maybe tomorrow. There's one here in Connaught Place where we're staying. Sorry to hear you've been ill on your trip. We've all four of us had something like that this trip although Patrick had it the worst. Great choice in books, btw. - Amber
