When I was in India, I took a one day hike in the mountains adjacent the Himalayas, it was very beautiful, mountains, incredible landscapes and a few farmers was what I encountered on the hike. This being one of the farmer families.

They where eating these pea like thing, and offered me one, I gladly accepted, but couldn’t quiet get it opened, I gave it to the lady on the left and she opened it for me, and then handed it back to me, but just as I was about to take it, she quickly eat it right in front of me, which made all four of us burst in to laughter.

I really enjoy these small intervention with people I meet on My various travels.

I never got a second one, and to this day I still don’t know what they where eating.
