Happy Holi!

I just got some crazy pictures from yesterday !  Holi is the Spring Festival of Color.  People throw colors, colored water shot from water guns,or buckets of water.   We were with two parties , one a group from CEPT, and the other a group of touring American students who had just arrived in India!  The problem with the buckets of water is that the colors all turn to muddy  color  instead of the vibrant spring colors.  Anyway, you get the idea and can see some of the colors we threw into the air .

Here we were ready to conquer the celbration!

Erin, from the last group, had a pink spot in her blonde hair until it grew out!

It was a fun day that we have been  anticipating  the whole time.  Today we take a train to Jaiput, the Pink City where we will see the Jantar Mantar, the Amber Fort, dancing cobras, and ride elephants,  Agra for the Taj, Amritsar for the Golden Temple, the Massacre garden, and Wagah Border, and my favorite Varanasi .   I have posts on all these places from 2013 if you want to check them out.  We will be traveling by train, bus ,and plane in this huge country.  This North trip is where all the tourists are in India. We no longer are such a sight to the Indians.  It is also the most expensive part of India and dbell went to the back this morning for even more cash!

I am taking my computer in hopes for some time before dinner to blog  if we have WIFI , but if you don’t hear from  me, it because we are touring !  Back home in Amdavad later in the month!
