This week’s travel snap is an old photograph (taken on print film) at Dastkar, a women’s collective just outside the Ranthambore National Park in India. These wonderful ladies were busy making the most delightful clothes, tablecloths, napkins and wall hangings. I was keen to support them and couldn’t resist buying a beautiful green skirt and matching blouse, which was much admired by my fellow travellers.

We were visiting Ranthambore park looking for tigers but sadly all I saw of this illusive creature was a footprint. However, a Katherina Viridulus or ‘dappled green tourist’,  as it is more commonly known, could be spotted over the next few days frequenting a nearby hotel’s swimming pool.

I wore my new outfit just the once and it turned me green from head to toe for nearly a week!
