On The Way Around The World

Sometimes the most beautiful or interesting things happen or are seen on the way to our destination rather than at our destination. As they say, it’s about the journey not the destination right? Sometimes, but definitely for this post.

Below is a series of photographs taken in transition from getting to point A to point B.

    1. I liked the milkman too, it was cool to see. The family that had just gotten some milk delivered made me a cup of chai with the fresh milk. They were a very poor family. Indian people are very hospitable.
