This Week in Vapi

I'll post on Navratri in a few days. In the meantime, here are sights around Vapi this week.

Nothing says festival season like street carts selling make-you-own garland supplies. The chilies are not for eating -- they're for the garlands. Note that the marigolds are sold by weight, not piece.
This is the local version of a "food truck" -- a food bicycle, complete with umbrella (for rain during monsoon, for sun during the rest of the year). The bicycle frame is specially equipped to carry the pails of food and the umbrella. There are also similarly equipped motorcycles.
There were probably 50 people squeezed into this tempo (small truck).
We have gecko inside our house that helps with insect control. Outside are lizards like this that have exceptionally long tails.
