The People Of Darjeeling

You've seen the place, now meet the people. While Darjeeling is in India, it's heavily populated by Nepalis. Which makes sense, being so close to Nepal. Factor in political unrest and the nearby Himalayas and you get a large immigrant population.

The barbershop man and a family hanging out at the town square.

Resting at a tea plantation.

Street salute and anxious balloon seller.

Woman selling belts.

Beautiful construction worker. Yes, construction worker. Mother and child.

Manly Friends. They aggressively lobbied to have their picture taken. Who knew, so vain?
