Camel for lunch?

Sunday, June 16, 2013
Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, India
An easy day planned for us.
In the morning we visited another carpet showroom and I loved a silk runner, but it is too long for our hallway .
Then on to Ashraf's brother Ahmid's house for lunch. What a feast they put on for us!
We met the extended family and their hospitality was very warm.
Lunch was served traditional style, sitting on cushions on the floor and eating with our fingers. Among 5 different meat dishes served one was camel.
Before lunch we were served saffron tea and biscuits. Then invited to look around the house. A big three storey house with at least 6 bedrooms, each with a bathroom. All with a built-in cupboard, carpets, curtains and no other furniture.
After lunch we met the children, the family parrot who likes chillies and went for a walk to nearby rice paddies.
