Phoebe’s Photo Journal of Johdipur
April 15th, 2010 by Kate

I kept saying, “Mom, Mom, can I have the camera”.

We walked back to our hotel through the market and I saw so many things that I wanted to take pictures of such as cows with crazy horns, ladies in saffron robes pushing carts of raisins, and tiny little stores with men in them selling anything you could imagine!  These are a few of the pictures I took…

These are only 20 of the 183 cows I counted on the street near our hotel.

There were raisin carts everywhere, as well as bread slice carts and fruit carts.  I like the hussle and bustle of this street!

In America, a load this big would be put in the back of a truck, but in India they just say "put it on your head for heaven's sake"

Married people wear bangles, little girls wear bangles, everybody EVERYBODY wears bangles.  Its crazy.  You can buy about 10 of these bangles for 50 rupee or one American dollar.  I love them.

In India, some people put eyeliner on the little babies because they think it makes their eyes look bigger.  But their eyes are big to begin with!

These kids were on my street washing their hands in the public faucet.  I wanted to take their picture, but they wanted their picture taken WITH me and not BY me.  So my mom took it.  They look more like American kids then most of the kids I saw in India.

This was the secret door leading to our hotel.  From the street you had to crunch between a flower merchant and a store selling pots and pans to get to the stairs that led up to the entrance.  It was actually a Hari Krishna temple, but half of it was converted to a hotel.  I was really surprised to find this nice little quiet garden in the middle of the crazy city.  My mom said the place had amazing potential.

I took about a million more pictures, but that’s all I’m going to post for now.
