I am flying to the UK next month, so I am starting my Christmas shopping in the markets of Bangalore. Friends and family reading this back home, do you have any requests?
Actually I think my Dad might like this stall where tools are sold and sharpened.
Does anyone need a watch repaired? I have been looking for an excuse to shop at the next shop – it’s so small!

When I still lived in East Finchley (London), there was (and probably still is) a repair shop (for shoes, leather goods, etc) round the corner from my flat that was just a bit bigger than the one above. You couldn’t move in there! Felt like being in a time capsule 😉
I’m hoping that the Bangalore one is bigger on the inside like a Tardis.
You really capture the flavor of your adopted city. I notice the bare feet because it is common where I am too!
Thank you! And I wince when I look at his feet and all those blades.

It looks much more exciting than the usual watch repair shop.
