In a little alley way deep in the labyrinthine market, I nearly tripped over the betel sellers. Betel nuts, from the areca palm tree are chopped up and place onto a leaf from the same tree. A slosh of lime, calcium hydroxide or slaked lime and not the citrus fruit, is added and rolled up into a package. (It is also called paan in India). You pop that between your teeth and the side of your mouth - and drool. It's a mild sedative and keeps people going during the extremely hot and tiring weather. The betel nut seller was anxious for me to try one but one look at his teeth definitely put me off. I thanked him, smiled sweetly and went on my way.
