Charminar: The Shops

Once I got past the terror of my morning panic attack and felt my feet on solid ground again, the rest of my day at Charminar was a breeze.

Oh, I mean, pay no attention to the:

temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, 
filthy runoff draining along the gutters, 
dank back alleys, 
ruthless shopkeepers, 
sideswiping traffic,
and continuous onslaught of staring Indians. 

But I didn't mind one bit. 

^ I enjoyed a steady stream of interesting vignettes,

^ endless shops full of colorful wares,

^ creative engineering,

^ and Bollywood bling like none other. 

My shopping day in Charminar was a never-ending tsunami of shocks and surprises and I wouldn't have it any other way.
