She has a mind to eat Cornish Pasties tonight!
Chris: And that is a fine ambition to have Ray
Oh she reminds me of my Grandmother! Grandma dressed up any time she was to set foot out of her apartment! So sweet!
Chris: If you look good you feel good: that is my theory Elizabeth

Oh, an English lady like in a picture book! Deli is a deli-cacy shop? I was in a Deli café in Bristol- Clifton with Lisl.
Chris: It is short for delicatessen Philine

I thought from the thumbnail that you had captured Her Majesty
Chris: Err...no Lisl!
I have a feeling she knows exactly what she's doing, Chris!!!
Chris: Indeed she does Ginnie
A strange shop Tiff, it seems to sell food and jewellery.
Chris: It's a new form of dieting Chad, you're so entranced by the jewellery you forget to eat

What a real sophisticated lady.. LOVE the colours she is wearing and I think nobody fools her and she knows what she is doing... is this old aristocracy??
Chris: That is what she looks like Astrid
She would have been at home in India at the time of the Raj
Chris: Yes that certainly looks like it, in fact maybe she was!

Good for her. Probably recalling the days when she could go into her village butchers and have a limited choice of local livestock (well, dead stock) but with a wonderful flavour.
Chris: There is a lot to be said for flavour in meat, or anything really. Sometimes you get the opportunity, like myself eating a pear grown on a very old tree at the farm, the other day, to appreciate just what we've lost in terms of taste. What in our childhoods was full of flavour nowadays can look appealing but taste of little more than cardboard. Flight going ok?
Purposeful Lady
Chris: She knows exactly what she wants
Deli/jewelry stores are not popular here for some reason.

'Should I buy a diamond? None that I like today. I will have a pork chop instead.'
Chris: Hahaha - very well put!

Her dilemma is to work out, how much treats she can carry in one hand.
Chris: Maybe she has faced this dilemma before Louis

Lovely picture Chris - she looks as if she is organised for a little reading with her picnic
Chris: And I'm sure it will be a civilised read too Anne

'Delikatessen' is a German or German-Austrian word - 'Deli' sounds Indian, in any case a bit exotic. I recall also a Deli-shop in St. Ives, probably in particular in those towns where are customers who can pay the surely more expensive products.
Chris: The word delicatessen or delicatessen has become shortened to deli in the UK now Philine
Obviously a good one by the number of customers!
Chris: It is indeed Tom, in the central market place
and there are necklaces being sold as well? another nice people shot, Chris
Chris: Thank you kindly Ayush
