The Tea Shop at Triund
Whenever a weary tourist would climb up to the tea shop and ask ofr a room or a tent, the great Indian bargaining game would begin. The shop caretaker would quote a price and the tourist would say no, but they were told it is only this much at McLeod Ganj. One lady I remember got quite angry too. And when the caretaker would go away for a while, he would instruct us to tell any tourists who came inquiring that rooms were available.
