Waiting

FB 03 Kutch IMG_1738

As the girls waited to be called onto the dance floor they posed in their colorful, traditional clothes. They are nomadic with road worn feet and cracked fingernails and less than perfect teeth. They speak very little English. Yet they know how to pose and what we, as tourists, as westerners, want to see. They know how to engage us, bringng us onto the dance floor, asking to have their pictures taken with us. Make no mistake, this is their job and they know how to do it.
