Travel Tuesdays - To market, to market

Bomdila, Arunachal Predash, India
On Travel Tuesdays we take a trip off the Charleston peninsula and dip into past travel albums.

This evening's visit is to one of the markets in the hill town of Bomdila on the road to Tawang. Pots and pans, kettles, fresh vegetables, the best oranges in the world and hanging on the strings below - dried yak milk, hard as a rock to suck on for hours. Not something you find at the local Piggly Wiggly.

That is my sister-in-law Val, shopping for kitchenware in the photo above.

I need to get to bed, kids. I am taking forty four teenagers on a field trip to Trident Technical College in the morning. Wish me luck!
