January 15, 2020: Shopping in Jojawar

 

Jojawar is a small city in Rajasthan.  Walking its streets is a good way to get a feel for how the people in the region sell their goods, shop, and live.

We spent a few days in Jojawar and had several opportunities to explore the area near our hotel.  There were a large assortment of vendors selling everything from textiles and clothes,  fruits, vegetables and other foodstuffs, to assorted commonly used household goods.

A great post about the ordinary in small town India. I've never been a great one for grand buildings of any sort. Ordinary people built them all ! Hardware stores are MOST illuminating 😃

The green fruit is a bit hard to be sure but it looks like 'amroodh', grown I believe in hilly northern areas - they're almost sweet, not that interesting and lots of ball-bearing seeds. There is an English name that escapes me ! Well it did so I looked up on Ecosia - it's guava !
