What about this old guy ?
I was determined to get a smile out of him
And this boy....
....destined for military service or police force perhaps ?
Now this place, believe it or not, is a very popular local restaurant. I know it doesn't look much but this guy cooks flat out all evening long on this one hot plate. Plenty of westerners will eat at these places as long as the food is freshly cooked. Plenty of plastic chairs and the place is full all the time (well it would be "full" if it wasn't outside I guess)
This young guy works at the hotel I'm staying at. His name is "Trainee" which is obviously a very common Indian name as there are many who have it
Some men like to sit around and do as little as possible, boss everybody else around.
So what do you do if you need to get your coconut palms across town ? Silly question, you put it on your head and get on the back of a motorbike !
We have seen the swami-beggar-baba latch onto the puppy as a good cash producing vehicle, so what about a baby ? Wouldn't work as well as the puppy though would it ?
Don't see many of these old cars here. They have squillions of them in the big cities as taxis. They are an Indian made version of an old 1960s Fiat I believe.
I love walking round the markets. Sunday morning in particular is a huge market day, though every night also gets quite busy. As usual they love having their photos taken.
