A little girl in a tamil workers’ colony inside the tea plantations. Munnar area, Kerala state, SW India, february 2016.
Her eyes did not left me during my visit in the colony (1 hr). She was drinking tea and staying silent.
Munnar, Kerala state, S-W India, January 2016
Tamil boy from a small workers village neighbouring the tea plantations in the mountains near the city of Munnar. Very modest, hardworking people. Seemed to me they were happy indeed.
