After visiting a beautiful temple in Jaipur I decided to walk back to my hostel. It was almost sunset and was starting the preparations for the Holi Festival. I was in a poor part of the city and I found myself walking in front of a tent camp of homeless.. about 200 meters of small tents built, full of families. Honestly I expected shyness and reluctance.. maybe to be "mobbed" for begging money.

Instead there was literally a competition to get a photo from me; everyone was trying to call my attention, sometimes posing for me. The kids, practically, were jumping over each other, struggling to have a memory of this unusual encounter. It's not exactly a place often frequented by tourists.. nobody stops, nobody pays attention to this small village of simple people that live with practically nothing.
