I though this photo pretty much perfectly sums up the town of Pushkar in the Indian state of Rajasthan: cows and demands on our money. To be fair, this donation box is obviously not aimed at foreign tourists and all cows have a tendency to look evil and angry when they stare straight into the camera, but I still found it fitting.
As one of the five sacred pilgrimage sites for Hindus, Pushkar has naturally become quite popular with foreign tourists as well. As is always the case, this has attracted countless scammers, especially around the lake in the center of town, which you can’t even approach these days without demands for fees and donations for blessings, charities, prayers for family members, taking photos, looking at stuff and breathing.
