As for fabric, India is heaven for fabric lovers. There are so many places to buy fabric, its amazing.
We went to an enormous fabric store in Chennai. It was so overwhelming I didn't know where to start.
I did purchase these lovely cottons from this store.
All in all an interesting trip. India is an amazing country that does present challenges. Attending an Indian wedding that went for 3 days and visiting the Taj Mahal are certainly bucket list items that are now ticked off.
