INDIA - no I`ve never been, but someday I want to, and looking at these beautiful pictures makes me want to go even more...

Holi Festival -



Anything goes in India this week as people welcome Spring with a week-long festival of colors. The festival, much like Mardi Gras, is a celebration of mischief and merrymaking, but the holiday honors Hindi mythology instead of commencing Christian Lent.

Wednesday 11th March was Holi, the main day determined by the full moon, and people celebrated by throwing colorful powder and water at each other.

  2. I thought you were in Japan, why the post on India? Did you go there for the holiday or something? How did you get the pictures?
