On our last Holi (at least for the
foreseeable future), we were invited to a huge party put on by some friends'
apartment building owners. Apparently they have this shindig every year,
and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Breck spent the night at their
house, and Susan, Dave, and Alea hopped in a rick for the 45 minute trip
out to Powai. When we got there, the party was in full swing - and the
lines of color coated guests just kept getting longer!
People were greeted and 'painted' by their
friends as this "Festival of Color" got started
Of course, not all of the powder applications
were done in the gentlest of manners, but with the festive music and fun
activities for all ages, most people spent the majority of the day with
a huge grin on their face
The Stutz family experience was no
different - although we seemed to have differing opinions as to what actually
constitutes a "grin."
By the end of the day we were all
stained and slimy, but still having a great time.
Alea and her friends cleaned up rather
But some of that other paint will take
a while to wash off!
Another Holi in the books, and another
celebration of Incredible India!
