The Tiffin


I have just returned from an incredible trip to India where I was in both Hyderabad and Mumbai (formerly Bombay). While in Mumbai, I had the pleasure of purchasing a "tiffin", which is a small metal carrying vessel used to transport lunch. It might seem silly, but I was so excited, I had to take some pictures, which are below. I also took pictures of the little shop where I bought my tiffin and finally the wonderful store owner who sold it to me.

In India, tiffins are picked up and delivered by dabbawalas who travel long and complex distances to get the tiffins to their lucky owners.
