I'm a her, actually, Wim... but thanks so much for putting all my posts together. I am really delighted that so many people are recognising the delights of Indian pens - and hoping that the Indian fountain pen industry will benefit!


Too many pens, too little time!

Yes, thanks, and corrected. Very brave of you to travel all by yourself, BTW.

 

I noticed that when actually reading the text rather than just admiring the pictures :).

 

And thank you for taking the trouble to write it all down, so we can follow your travels and adventures!

 

Warm regards, Wim
