Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

I agree with Lucid Gypsy – Travel brings with it opportunities to meet people.

It is my experience, shared I know with many travellers, that the poorest people are the most generous.

A short motorbike ride from Udaipur into the country I met a family and invited into this house to share tea with the family. After tea the father, a young farmer was too shy to come and have his photograph taken. I’m sure he made the family pose so I would ‘dash’ them some money which I was more than happy to do in return for glimpse into a life so different…

Families are the same the world over though their circumstances vary enormously.

    The ‘dash’ would have made a difference to that family and wouldn’t hurt you at all! The mama doesn’t look too cheerful about the photo does she? 🙂
