INDIA: Chai and Food in the Backstreets of Haridwar

Haridwar, city of temples, ashrams, and a colorful, lively riverfront.  So where did I find the photography to be the most interesting? In the dark, crowded backstreets, of course!  Streets full of chai sellers, chai drinkers, food stalls, cafes, and lovely people – and let’s not forget the more than occasional cow wandering about.

Everyone has a photo or statue of Ganesh and Lord Krishna in their place of business for good fortune – I saw these hung on a wall behind a gentlemen selling trinkets on the street.  He told me he takes them with him each night and puts them up wherever he sets up each day.   I like that.

Namaskār, Lisa
