Street Scenes

On our long drive to Agra, we were able to see so much of Indian life. We saw cows, camels, monkeys, dogs, horses, donkeys, goats, wild pigs, and even an elephant, all right on the roads. Almost every time we stopped, beggars would come up to the windows and try to get our attention (and our money). The most striking thing to me was the sheer poverty all around us. It was just overwhelming to see what these people live like. I'm sure there are better areas, but everywhere we went today was just sad.

Notice the dried cow pies laid out on the side of the road (for sale, I guess).
