Re: January 15, 2020: Shopping in Jojawar

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 !

And, of course, it's the season for some non-edibles as well, in the form of holiday...
