  1. These ones really got to me…and I am not a foodie. Lovely shots, and I would have loved to try most of the food here – especially the Kulfi!

  2. Mmm I’m taking the one from India and Pakistan – even though they can keep their edible silver, I’m happy with what remains. 🙂 In my post for this challenge I have plenty of sea food, if you wish to have a look.
