straight razor shave (india)

That's me, getting a straight razor shave in Darjeeling (India)

The blade on my neck makes me a bit nervous.­ You don't want to mess with an Indian barber!

Photos taken in India in 2013

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­
