This weekend L and I checked out a fancy new shopping mall here in Delhi. It was shiny and exactly like a mall in the US. At first it was exciting to shop in a place with familiar stores (Lush, my favorite store in the world, Swatch, Levi, Puma, etc) but very quickly it lost its charm, it felt just like every other mall in the world. We didn’t feel like we were in India anymore. I missed the gritty, craziness of the markets here. I’ve decided I’ll save the mall for those times when I just need a break and want to go someplace familiar, but the rest of the time, I’ll stick to the local markets (thanks to L for the photos.)

In honor of my sudden onset of insomnia and the lack of sleep I'm going to get over the next couple of nights while I'm traveling, here's one of my favorites, The Corrs "Long Night"
