April 12 - From the temple, we completed the walk around the block, hopped onto cycle rickshaws to head back through the spice market. It was great seeing all the vegetables, sweets, household goods, etc. all on display. The spice market smelled great! Included here were huge displays of nuts, dried fruit, dried chilis, dried mango leather, cinnamon, etc. Cattle, goats, and monkeys were everywhere. The satellite dish antennas on the roofs even had cages to keep the monkeys and birds off.

Perry stopped at a favourite lassi stand and treated us to our first lassi - a yogurt drink. One side of the vendor is making the yogurt, and next door is another member of the family making the lassi in a special machine. Because our CEO recommended this stall, we knew it was safe to drink. These are served in special earthen cups, which are thrown into a bin once finished. They recycle these cups by pulverizing them and making new cups.

After our lassi treat, we were taken to a restaurant called Indiana. We sat under the stars and had a great supper. While waiting for our meals, we were entertained by a family -- two musicians, a singer, two female members of the family danced, and one man who appeared to be the patriarch, ran the show. The older female did most of the show, but both were dancing with a flaming pot. Then the older female danced while balancing an increasing stack of clay pots on her head -- topped with a pot of flames. Female diners were invited up to add the pots. Then the dancer danced on blocks of spikes, and also went down onto her knees to pick up rupee bills with her teeth while balancing the stack of pots. 

After the meal and entertainment we were driven back to the hotel for the night. We were promised WiFi, but no such luck...
