Afghan Photo Shoot at the Red Fort

Showing off my american friends

This young Afghan guy and his friend were quite friendly and promptly began taking unsolicited photos of us at the Red Fort and I, disorientedΒ American new to India and indoctrinated with fear of central Asia, was made profoundly uncomfortable and was probably not especially polite. Within a week I realized that getting our pictures taken was just part of the deal being a honky in Delhi.
