This is another image taken from my January 2008 Tour Of India. This one was taken at Jaipur during one of the walkabouts there. Exploring the back roads of the city (well, actually, every road seems like a back road), I was struck by how friendly everyone was. Sure you get the beggars who won’t leave you alone but a good many of them, while not extremely well off, seemed contented with life.
