I couldn’t stop laughing, flipping through these final Old Delhi photos from our teacher tour of India. As you may have seen from the previous two articles, Old Delhi is chaotic on foot, so you can imagine how much more of a crazy rainbow whirlwind things became when our guide hailed a pack of bicycle rickshaws to zip us around! In the moment, I hardly realized what my camera was capturing.
Now back in snowy Boston, I am finally able to slow down and see what my camera froze in time… and some of it is really funny! I have numbered each photo so you can respond in the comments section about what YOU observe. I will start you off with a giggle about the photo, below. At what point did those vendors decide, “The best business direction for our orange business will be to add… necklaces!”?
Now it’s your turn. What reactions, connections, or questions do these photos elicit for you? (As you scroll down, do notice how jaunty that rickshaw driver’s hair is.) Enjoy!
What a wonderful Old Delhi tour we had! I eagerly await your comments, analysis, connections, and questions about the photos that stand out to you. And do stay tuned, because this article merely covers the morning of Day 2 on our 9-Day India tour! To see all the other articles from touring India, click here.
