These are three cute kids who loved having their photograph taken. I was cycle touring around Darjeeling district in India and stopped in a town on my way through the mountains towards Kalimpong looking for a cafe, but there wasn’t one. A passerby noticed me and saw that I was tired and invited me into their house for food and drink. This is fairly typical behaviour in these sparsely populated mountain villages where people are extremely friendly and hospitable. After I was fed and watered I saw these children and they really wanted their photo taken…They laughed and giggled uncontrollably, and it was very funny, and fun.
