Patricia Alam has been living in India since 1983. She taught Drama and English in the UK and the British School in New Delhi before settling in Masrana near Mussoorie in the Himalayas.

We live and work in a small village called Masrana which is outside Mussoorie town in the Himalayas. It is a beautiful and interesting area. Our house and dyeing workshop are on a ridge with a view of both the Himalayan peaks and Dehradun valley. Many of the villages around us are old and rich in the culture and architecture of the Garhwal Himalayas. Hope these photos will give you some idea of our surroundings.
