One time our driver Mr Singh was accused of hitting one of the cows with his van. The locals were not pleased and an argument ensued. Alka our guide intervened and all was well.
Some work hard, some not so much
This beautiful well attired girl is collecting dung to use as fuel. As in many countries children here work very hard. Lots of difficult labor and lots of selling to the tourists. Boy, could some of them sure sell. Many of the children can speak more than 3 languages. This is to be able to hawk their wares. All the children work for their families.
While walking the streets in town of Gajner this little girl (in the red shirt below) came up to me and insisted I come to her home. I tried to say no but she was insistent. When her older sister came to the door of the family house and also invited me in I went. Warm and friendly they proudly showed us their home. They also showed us how to make bread and decorated the girls with henna.
In the pictures below notice the intricate work done on this building. The pictures, however, do not do it justice.
As we were walking through the Taj Mahal, a group of girls became enamored with Beth and asked for a picture to be taken with her.
