• Many tourists want to take as many photos as possible on holiday. This is not always appreciated by the locals. So always ask permission before taking a photo. In some places and times it is not even appropriate to take pictures at all. Think of religious processions and ceremonies, bathing people and army objects. Several indigenous peoples believe that taking a picture takes away their souls. Others wish to receive money for taking a photo. Be respectful of this and don’t take a picture without permission.

• Take photos from home with you. People you meet during your trip love watching you live at home and who your family is. This is really cultural interaction!

• If you take pictures of the people you meet, you will sometimes be asked to send them. Don’t promise anything if you can’t make it happen.
