... with tattered edges and faded covers making almost impossible to tell what's on offer. Motor bikes toot their horns constantly while cows mozzie along seemingly unphased by the commotion. We obviously stand out in these scenarios. Little Maya and my short wearing self sipping from western soft drink cans, possibly the only two with sunglasses on.

... a smile. Rather than use the restaurant’s washroom or order a chai masala, we proceeded to play with the dozens of 3-month-old puppies scattered on the front lawn.

... and goats wander among the crush of people, motorbikes, rickshaws and tuc-tucs. A flooded street, blocked with rubbish and heaven knows what else sent us on a detour to find our way back, but a lovely detour it turned out to be. Children seemed to fill the streets all wanting their photograph taken and rushing to have a look at the results, waving a "Hello" to us as we wandered through.
