#worldchildrensday ...This young lady gave me a tour of her home in the Dharavi slums outside of Mumbai, which is the second largest slum in the world. I gave some rupees and she was exited for me to see her doll collection, which were stick figures wrapped in painted plastic bags. We burned some plastic bags with her family and I gave them 20 bucks, which was 3 months worth of pay for these folks...they told me that my i was a cheetah in karma life and if I ever needed a place to stay I could stay there. I’m still trying to figure out how the nicest I’ve met on my travel have the fewest worldly possessions. .........#dharavi #slums #travel #mumbai #india #backpacking #travelstories #kids #gratitude #blackandwhite #bw #vectors #slumdogmillionaire #nikon

Today I did something I never thought I would do, And that's going on a 'slum tour' of Dharavi- the largest slum in Asia. You might recognize it from Slumdog Millionaire. Part of me felt really gross for going on it before the tour because it's the epitome of privilege as a 'rich, foreign' tourist to go see how these poor people live, like a zoo. But I saw some real shit. And what I learned was astounding- this slum is like no other because of its productivity- annual business of $665 million. It's an entire parallel economy heavily involved in recycling (80% of Mumbai's recycling) and manufacturing of a variety of goods. 1 million people live in an area as big as Central Park. But there are no beggars, no one goes to bed hungry, and people of different religions live together in the closest of quarters. The people there have pride in the work they do and have very close knit communities within this tiny area. This tour dispelled the myths of what I thought this slum was. The human spirit always learns to survive. And in its own way- thrive. The tour company- Reality Tours is a non-profit and channels the profits back into the community to educate the children in English and Computers. I am so grateful for what I have in my life. The last pic is of a wallet I bought that was manufacturing from beginning to end in Dharavi. #dharavi
