Photo Essay: The Chickpea Flour Boys of Mapusa

These two young men spend all day, every day in a sweltering little workshop toasting and grinding chickpeas into flour for use in various Indian dishes (including the delicious deep-fried green chillies I ate for breakfast). It's hot, hard work and I couldn't stand the heat in there for more than 10 minutes. But they were very friendly and happily put up with me taking photos of them, and the images I got there are the highlight of my visit to Mapusa.
