If only I could say the same for my pedicure… but I’ve loved these crazy sandals since my first trip to Grasshopper. Last night, the MSR contingent I’ve worked with most closely took me for a magical dinner there. It’s one of the best meals I’ve had in years–so delectable.

Grasshopper also has a boutique with shoes and clothing from Indian designers. By American standards, the prices are very reasonable; by any standards, the clothing is beautiful and unusual.
