Before the advent of social media, the film camera was all the world had and depended on for capturing a good frame and storing it, only to be retrieved later on for reliving that memory. Take your friend back to the good old days, before the phone was everything one needed, to capture a beautiful frame. A good old school film camera will be a great memoir and offer a different experience, every time you capture a view. Experiencing the monsoon and revelling in the joy of taking pictures with a good camera, is something every traveller should experience.
