Street vendors in Rajasthan, India

Indian’s  are amazing business people. Every corner in the streets is filled with vendors of any kind you can’t imagine. Barbers, spices, fruit and vegetable stands, clothes and tailors, shoe soles and  welders. It is a hard business after an exhausting day in heat and dust to have their ends meet.
