Supper at Golden

Thursday evening we finally made it into the bazaar for supper. We usually go to Golden Restaurant near the nonexistent Clock Tower the first week here. This was the third week, and we finally got there! I love paneer pakoras, so we started with them. Paneer is Indian cheese, like solidified cottage cheese. The pieces of cheese are dipped into chickpea flour batter and deep-fried. Absolutely delicious! You'll notice a small green chili included -- Dan loves those.

For the main course, we had chicken do piaza (double onions), Dan's favorite, and saag aloo, potatoes in spinach sauce. Chapattis for bread to eat with.

The walk home in the cool evening was lovely. The moon was about 3/4 full, the sky was clear, and the moonlight was bright. In areas where there weren't any street lights, we could see our shadows clearly. When we are here, we are always aware of the phase of the moon, because it makes a big difference at night. Living in towns in the US, people can go months without even noticing that there is a moon.

Above Springview we heard a loud sound from a tree up the khud, sort of a cross between a peacock and a smaller bird. It cried out repeatedly as we walked along; something like we've never heard before.
