Kids are kids everywhere

The kids were playing near the river, they noticed me, posed a little (in bad light) then ignored me and continued their play (in a better light):

Chilling from play, they took some refreshing coconuts and came again to pose for me, proudly sipping the coconut milk:

The hermit

Everybody knows you will find hermits in India and I found this guy:

And his unusual house, near the river beach:

Railroad slums

Those shacks by the railroad are probably one of the poorest houses I saw on my Indian trip and they are located somewhere in the Kolkata city. I also saw something extremely poor in Mumbai, but I didn’t get the time to walk in that city, what I saw was only from the plane, during the landing and taking-off.

Beggar monkey

This beggar from Kolkata was not content with 5 rupies, so I took one single snap and that was all. The reality is, I had no change on me, even those rupies were borrowed from a friend (not a wise idea to be in India having only 100USD bills in your wallet).
