Besides experimenting with different cooking ingredients, one of the things I love the most is travelling. And going to local markets in different places. It's really a lot of fun browsing through what different vendors have to offer and most markets are very colorful. Thought I would share pics of my visit to a wholesale market in India (looks a lot like some of the farmers markets we have here in the US). Cheers!

Dried Herbs and Spices
Decorations and Rangoli powders (folk art using colorful powders)
An Auto-Rickshaw (ride for hire, sets three, lots of fun!)
