As we headed up a hill during our hike to the temple, we were greeted by locals that offered to carry us to the top. Most people on the trip felt bad about making someone carry them, even if they were getting paid. Surprisingly, or not?, two of the larger people on the tour decided to take advantage. You should have seen the disappointment and fear on the faces of the locals. As James and I walked up the hill we could hear that poor, tiny woman in the back grunting and struggling to carry the tourist as the rider waved at everyone and said, "isn't this grand? oh it's so fantastic!". At the top we saw the poor girl drop her end and basically collapse. Not really the best way to earn a buck . . . :( I think James might also have this on video, I should try to find the clip... ;)
