He was offered the best Bhang lassie in town (Marijuana milkshake).The funny thing was that the shop had even got a TripAdvisor certificate on the wall as the best Bhang shop in Jaisalmer. After apologising for the misunderstanding, Peter left the shop and went across the road for some Paan. We spent the rest of the afternoon just ...
