Yesterday I bought my first stamps for this time around in India. It reminded me of my last stay here.

That day, early February 2008, I glued Rs. 2500 (about $60) worth of stamps on a Doti in the shape of the Indian map. The Doti is the south Indian male wrap around 'skirt'. I bought it for the purpose of wrapping a parcel to be shipped to Israel. Indian post office regulations, or just the mandatory tradition, requires every parcel shipped (abroad?) to be fully wrapped and stitches in fabric. Then every spot where stitches begin/end/cross has to be sealed with molten wax !

Later, back in the USA, this beautiful quilt served me to cover items left in my parked car.

Some of the stamps, like the set of 4 flower stamps on the upper left and the white sheets with the brown woodcarving on both the right and left have a scent of their featured picture: flowers and sandal wood.
