People are the best subjects, and in India, they are the best anywhere. They love the camera and the camera loves them. And turnabout is fair play: we are often approached by locals here to have a picture taken, sometimes with them in the shot, sometimes on our own, simply because we are white. Maybe also because we are American, maybe because we are unusual, but in every case it is a charming and rewarding exchange. A serious dose of extreme travel would be a great tonic for the entrenched and narrow-minded in our country…

Anyway, this photo was taken en route to Chennai, at a highway stop for some sweet, hot, chai. Yum.
