I was lucky to have the chance to visit India 3 times for work over a 2 month period. I've mentioned the Shilparamam Crafts Market in Hyderabad in a previous post. We found it a challenging place to navigate on our own. The prices varied considerably and we had to bargain hard to get a fair price (not something Americans are very comfortable with). A colleague took me back to Shilparamam on my third trip and what a difference it made! For one, we went during the day. The sun was shining and we had a most excellent time exploring the various stalls.
