It’s all about the people

The question I get asked more than any other, is why do I choose to go to all these places. There is only one answer, and it applies to every single place I have traveled to.

It is the people

And here are some of the wonderful people I met on this trip. I have to start with this amazing  lady whom  I met in a tiny village miles from anywhere where there is no doctor, no social services, no help of any kind. When I met her, she was about half a mile from her village. She had seen our car stop and wondered who we were. She had walked the half mile to find out.  She is 96 years young and looks after herself

But she was only one of many senior citizens I met, all of whom had such wonderful faces

And then there were the beautiful women. So many of them in their lovely saris, but there is one in particular that I will remember

And everyone we met was so friendly and open, and this young man’s welcoming face says it all

And of course there were the children.
