This is our taxi driver-cum-tour guide-cum-mom. She was a very patient, polite, cordial and even sometimes funny person. At each sightseeing spot she'd pull into the driveway, explain to us where we were, what we were supposed to look for, remind us to bring our water bottles, and that she'd wait for us to get back, no pressure at all. Every time we arrived to get back into the van, she'd assume the position my dad is in in this picture, protecting our heads as we climbed in. Which was of course highly amusing coming from so small a person, so we had to take this picture.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.
