The Garden Club was asked if it would supply desk plants, handed to the first 50 KPMG employees to arrive at work, as part of KPMG's Green Initiative.  KPMG Bermuda believes that sustainable communities are directly tied to how well we live in our environment.  The KPMG Green Committee has a number of annual initiatives and goals which are supported by lunch & learns, quizzes, posters, audits (eg waste and paper usage) and quarterly giveaways.  This year they started a Tip of the Month with February being “Improve your indoor air quality with plants and by keeping your home and office well ventilated”.   President Susan Conyers and a small group took on the project, the results of which can be seen above.  The project was hailed a success, so much so that KPMG are planning to repeat it.  A donation by KPMG was made which will be applied to our annual Scholarships, and Community activities.

After tea we were given a wonderful talk about Gota work, which is the intricate sewing of gold, silver, copper, and rose gold threads in various forms on clothing. There were two models who were in unique beautiful sarees with two forms of this beautiful handmade work. One of the dresses took one month to complete, 20 ladies working on it!!!

Later this afternoon we had high tea at the Faluknama Palace, which is one of the 35 palaces in the area still privately owned, and now a very high end hotel. It is perched very high on a peak and upside the Old City, with incredible views in all directions. Guests are bright from the gate to the hotel in horse drawn carriages, and then rose petals are tossed over the upper balcony to the stairs below, as you make your way up to register.

Today, Tuesday in Hyderabad, was another long hot one. We were taken by bus down into the Old City area to visit Charminar, which is considered the Centre of the city. It is under restoration at the moment, with one of the four minarets completed. We had a considerable walk through some tight streets of vendors selling everything from limes to bangles, to men’s wedding jackets, to shoes, very glitzy outfits and the list goes on. This is a more Islamic part of the city, so we were more modestly dressed, and limited on our use of cameras.

A long but wonderful day today at a craft village preceded by a traditional lunch on a banana leaf “plate” in a local banquet hall. A little retail therapy was good.
