A day spent in the Peo market
We started our day with local food, then indulged in some shopping and ultimately it was time to buy local vegetables and other essentials. We were fortunate to find everything that we were looking for in Peo market.
There was a small issue with my car, the underbelly cover was making some kind of a sound and to my utter disbelief I could also find a good mechanic to fix that as well.
Mutton soup was really rejuvenating
One of the best Mutton Thupka
All time favorite- Mutton steam momo with local sauce
Winter clothes easily available
Selling some herbal medicines
Last but not the least police station and we enjoyed our food at the canteen thanks to my friend Aman Ahuja who was also our guide during the day spent exploring the Peo market.
