Welcome back to This is India! I always have funny/weird stories about India to share with friends or family when I talk to them. This is just meant to be an honest portrayal about my life in India through short anecdotes. I also share here what I’ve been up to online outside Hippie in Heels.

What I was up to other than here:

  • Work, work, work. I have been having website server issues which would bore you to hear about but it’s been the worst & costly. If you ever try to come to my site and get a “403 error” on the screen I would love if you would screenshot that and sent it over to me on email or social media.
  • I am looking for hire someone who knows how to use Rewardstyle & Shopstyle if you’re reading this and you’re a VA, email me please.
  • Reading: a book I’m not sure about yet called
    [easyazon_link identifier=”0062273337″ locale=”US” tag=”Hipinhee-20″]Oh Dear Sylvia[/easyazon_link]. It’s good so far. Would love some suggestions on what you guys are reading. I like books that are like “Girl on the Train” or “Gone Girl”, which I guess have a a more intelligent word for their genre that “who done it?” novels… psychological thrillers?
  • Ben and I are off to Singapore on Thursday. Not gonna lie, we’re stoked to get a Burger King (or 3). We’ve got a wedding and will be back to Goa Tuesday.
  • Writing: I got published on Huffington Post which was super cool, even though they don’t pay for the articles.
  • I’m going to try an use Snapchat while in Singapore and give it a go again. I’m not sure if I like it yet. If you have it, you can see videos and pics on there. Username: hippie-inheels. Share yours with me so I can follow you back!
  • Lastly, working out. An awesome blog reader, Kaitlyn, commented that I should check out “toneitup” for work out videos and I did. They are great! I’ve been doing them every day which will pretty much be canceled out with all the fast food I’m sure to eat in Singapore.

Now your story,

I don’t know why it took me so long to share a pic of our veg seller! We go here for our weekly veg (when we feel like cooking that week) and fill up the little metal bowls with what we want to be weighed out.

We usually get a lot more than we did on this trip, but in the end got what you see pictured below for 100 Rs ($1.50). I think she gives us an okay deal because we use her a lot, but even so I’m sure as foreigners we are paying more than what it really costs. No point is bothering over $1.50 though since we’re more than happy with it. I’m curious how much this would cost back home: 6 big carrots, 5 big potatoes, 5 red onions, two bunches of spring onions, garlic bulb, 5 tomatoes. How much would it cost in your country? and Indian readers, how much should this cost!?This is India! 101
