Fans of the Children
Lula & Maya got a lot of attention everywhere we went in India. It occurred to me too late that I ought to charge 100 rupees for every time someone touched Maya's cheek. It would have helped us to pay for the trip. On the other hand, the children also warmed people's hearts quicker and softened our image in the eyes of others and I suspect that helped me get photos that I wouldn't always get. It helped to make up for the challenge of taking a photo while carrying a child.
Maya learned to ask waiters for things like Juice and Ice cream but she's still wary off people who don't have treats to offer.
Both photos show fans of the children. The guy on the right is trying to take Maya's photo with his camera phone.
