Would you like to buy my son?

Our 200th episode comes out today! It’s a retrospective of our time aboard Esper but includes some of our travel experiences off the boat too. It makes for some fun viewing so we hope you enjoy it.

In this video episode, I wanted to include some overlays for our time in India. I was going through some of my old photos of our three years there when I came across this one I took of Chella Duri, a goatherder we met in the Western Ghats of Kerala. It was an opportunity to re-edit the photo but also revisit that very bizarre encounter in which he asked if we’d like to buy his son!

We don’t often do ‘look backs’ at old blog posts but some of you may have missed this story from 2011, so I thought I’d post the re-edited photo, along with a link to the original story in which we discover why his foot was bandaged and our reaction to being offered to take his nine-year old son onboard. What would you have done?
