During our first journey in the Indian Sub-continent we were fortunate enough to meet some amazing individuals. They all influenced our experiences in a some small way.
A Tibetan child minding his mother’s stall at the night market in Apurna, Goa.
A beautiful young mother and her child on the banks of the Tungabhadra River in Hampi, Karnataka.
The ‘Yoga Baba’ sitting in his Banyan tree in the jungle behind Arambol beach, North Goa.
Local men dressed as Hindu Gods Shiva and Parvati at Hampi Festival, Karnataka.
Whilst in Colva we were befriended by a young woman called Renuka. This is a picture of her beautiful baby daughter Leleisha.
A market seller at Anjuna Flea Market, Goa.
So called ‘Holy Men’ in Hampi. Having witnessed them chasing tourists around Hampi Bazaar in a somewhat aggressive search for funds I’m dubious as to their actual status of holiness! Non the less they provided me with entertaining people watching.
Sunita, the prettiest girl on Colva beach (unfortunately her singing was not nearly as sweet as her face).
A picture of the first snake charmer we encountered during our saunter over the sub-continent. Unfortunately, though the picture says otherwise, he was useless. Much to the delight of the squealing crowd the snakes continued to bite him and attempt bids for freedom!
Local children from a tiny village on the outskirts of the Thar Desert ran to greet us as we passed.
A little boy proudly showing off his puppy in Hampi Bazaar, Karnataka.
A couple of cuddly, eye liner clad babies in Bundi, Rajasthan.
Young boys pose for a picture during a parade through the centre of Agra, Uttar Pradesh.
Young girls waiting for their big festival moment in Hampi Bazaar, Karnataka.
The father daughter musical team who followed us through the streets of Pushkar in an unrelenting bid for us to buy their music. They were a lovely pair and seemed very friendly. We probably would’ve bought a CD from them if they weren’t trying to charge upwards of 1000 Rupees and if their live performance didn’t sound so unbelievably dire! Seriously, think cats being drowned!
