Streetscenes from Leh

Aum Mani Padme Hum!


An apple bargain.


  Going home from school.

Labor for hire in the bustling little regional capital.



In the small alleys the dogs are sleeping.

Leh is, like most cities in India, populated by a large number of police officers. The slogan of Delhi police "With you for always."

 Porters, scooters, there is room for everyone, but look out!


No nonsense transportation!


Here people actually fix their clothes instead of throwing it out.
