Chapter 3: Where a monkey steals Toby's shirt

You get at least four dishes - the dish you actually ordered, plus a daal, plus two other vegetable dishes like a potato or lady fingers and chillies (who knew 'lady fingers' was a vegetable?!).It's also very hot! The the music here is English and there are plenty of Christmas songs. It's fab because there are Buddhists, Catholics and Muslims who all celebrate each other's festivals and respect each other's ways of life. It's a great start so far, can't wait for day ...
