The 'real' slum dogs of Mumbai
What can I say...
You know what I have been thinking about. We (the tourists) like this poverty, isn't that what we come here to see?!?!? If not that, we come here because it is so cheap and why is it so cheap??? Because of THIS poverty. It is actually sick really. Why don't so many millions of travellers go to Germany each year? Because noone can "find themself" in Germany...hmmm can you tell I have had a negative couple days.
I could take hundreds of photos a day of scenes like this.
How do you walk by this to work every day, or worse drive in a ferari to work by this EVERYday?
A worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was: "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?" The survey was a huge failure... In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant. In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant. In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant. In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant. In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant. In South America they didn't know what "please" meant. And in the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.
