Chor Bazaar Finds

2 May

One of my favorite things to do in South Mumbai after visiting Le Pain Quotidien is to navigate the chaos of Chor Bazaar.  Anything and everything can be had in what used to be called the “thieves market” at a bargin basement prices [bargaining is required].  The reward for braving the heat, dust, horns and crush of humanity are unique gems which wait amid bric-a-brac.  Today I found these colorful woven plastic mats outside a mosque.  I assume Muslims would use them as prayer mats, but they are so beautiful and colorful, I thought they would be great for a picnic, a play corner or on an outside deck.
