Street Food Delights
Street food is one of the delights of traveling anywhere in the world. On our way to Chistian yesterday we encountered this samosa and jalebi cart along the road. Absolutely delicious!
Relaxation and Wedding Reception
Sunday afternoon was a time for rest and relaxation before we went on a drive around the city with Yousaf and then attended a wedding reception at a local banquet hall. The reception was hosted by the bride’s family. The bride is the sister of Kiran who is Ehsan’s wife. All of the Chaman family attended plus many people from St. John’s church – a total of about 250 people.
When the groom came in he was attended by a band with bagpipes and drums. The bride came in with her attendants about a half hour later and then everyone enjoyed a meal of rice, chicken, salad, kheer (rice pudding) and rose water flavored ice cream. A fun evening. Tomorrow we’ll attend the reception hosted by the groom’s family.
