Honesty In Chamba

Honesty in Chamba
Today we went into Chamba to see the town and shop, etc. While there Libby decicded to buy some bananas, so we went up to the guy and Libby asked for five bananas and the man said 50 ruppees. Our adult leader, Beaver (aka Parker,) told Libby to barter down and so she tried and tried she said “40” and the man said no, she tried to go somewhere else but the man would not budge on his price. So finally Libby just gave him 50 ruppee, we took the bananas and walked off. About 2 or 3 minutes later a man came running up to us and yelling.
“15” he said. “5 bananas for 15 ruppees!” and he gave Libby 35 ruppees in change. We were all shocked that someone would not take advantage of us and just keep the money anc cheat us stupid Americans, but he didn’t. The people in Chamba are very honest and I really respect that.
