Holi People

Holi at the Train Station
We were lucky enough to be in India for Holi – a big and colorful holiday in India that celebrates the Spring harvest and involves color being rubbed, sprayed and splashed around.

We had a safe, staid and controlled Holi celebration at the hotel as we were warned that Holi festivities can get overly rowdy.

But the best pictures and expressions of Holi were to be found out and about.

Holi at the Agra Fort
Which was nothing compared to some folks that ended up stained for days.

    Great snaps. I was fortunate enough to visit India during Holi, and I remember it to be a “colorful” experience as you show. If you’re still in the area and might be going to Jaipur, be sure to visit Amber Fort. If you’re interested, I posted a few photos from my visit to check out. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

    That looks amazing! I have heard about this. I would have loved to have been in the country for the occasion.
    There’s so much that I didn’t do while in India (because of work) that I’ll have to add to the next trip there.
    Great photos!
