Mobile knife sharpening
While preparing our breakfast fruit salad after practice one morning, I complained that the kitchen knife was dull. Later that same day Philipp heard a racket outside. As if the local knife sharpening man had heard my earlier complaints, he mysteriously appeared at our front gate with his portable knife sharpening assembly (a sharpening stone attched to a bicycle flywheel, powered by a foot pedal). In all my previous trips to India I had not yet seen a knife sharpening wallah*, yet low and behold when I needed one, there he was! But that's India for you!!
* generic Indian term for a person involved in some kind of activity, in this case knife sharpening
