Today (feeling much, much better, thank you dear friends) I went to the Mapusa market with my friend Chrys, to get some more things to help her settle in as well as pick up some more cushions for the meditation center.

I saw some colors that I liked. (And got laughed at for taking this photo, but what else is new?)

Then we went to the steel shop to get Chrys some bowls.

And you know I can never walk away from a steel shop empty-handed. This is what I bought.

Then I went to the earthenware sellers and bought a little bowl for flowers.

And at the end of the day we had a key made for Chrys's scooter.

It was a visually packed day. Oh how I love the Mapusa market.
