Rickshaw Driver

M. James Thompson

One Fine Adventure: Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

This is a man that I met in Jaipur India while I was escaping from my hotel. I was photographing the burning garbage next to the rickshaw when he came up. It was his rickshaw and fire and he was very interested in having his picture taken. The rickshaw is his home and the other drivers are his neighbors every night. He had a smile on his face the moment I met him and he was incredibly friendly despite our language barrier. I’m torn about my experience here in Jaipur; the people that I’ve met when the tour guides are gone and I’ve escaped the hotels will be the best memories on this journey.
