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.
Sadly the time has come to say goodbye to them all
and if there is one face I will never forget it is this one
The Indian people old and young are beautiful
Even the REALLY old ones (naming no names!)
I just saw the movie LION last night. You must find a way to see it. Bring tissues.
I love these photos! Yes, beautiful people- young and old! Your photography also is brilliant! Especially in the close-ups, you can see the world in their eyes! Thank you for sharing your travels. Truly, your fabulosity meter must be singing!

Why the last one??
I have never left a comment before Stunning photos Thank you
Susan, I am so glad you left a comment. When no one comments I wonder if any one is out there reading what I write.
Andrew, you know me, I rarely am quiet, but in regards as to no one’s commenting on your posts and pics and observations, perhaps you should consider that they are so moving, it’s hard to find words that do them justice. You and Gordon let some of us live through your adventures. Will we EVER see you on the steps in PV?
Thank you Pat!
de nada, amigos
Beautiful. These photos should be compiled in a book.
