Finally our passports have returned with visa’s inside …. (hooray), following Kristy having had to travel to Hounslow and a long day spent in their offices – a test of patience and resolve.

Well the countdown is on (leaving 2nd Oct), while excited and looking forward to seeing both our friends and suppliers, following a challenging time for everyone … and hopefully finding lots of hidden treasures. So it’s planes, trains and automobiles, along with rickshaws and tuk tuks ….(and Russ’ walking stick) and the warmth of both the people and Rajasthan itself. If in the interim you have any requests, please get in touch, while I plan to post a daily blog/instagram once there and to include any extraordinary finds …. Stay safe and well.
