I Can Be a Tourist Attraction too!

Of course I was attracting some attention, mostly when traveling in the rural areas. But I was really amazed that people were taking photos of me! Not that many Indians own cameras, so most of them were using their mobile phones to take a photo and they were doing it semi-secretly. But in Hampi there were many groups of Indian tourists that had "real" cameras and they were also openly asking if they can take photos of us (Nancy, Naomi and me) either by ourselves or even posing for pictures with them, like on the photo below:

I did not mind being photographed at all. I thought it was fair that they were taking photos of us, as we were taking so many photos of them.
