Holi Festival in the the golden city
Arrived in Jaisalmer we were blown by the place, especially by the roof top chill which is also served by food from the attached restaurant. But the very best about it is Prince, the manager of the restaurant who also serve the people. He is always up for a smile and a nice chat and makes you feel very welcome.
The Hostel is close to the sunset point and about 10-minute walk from the fort. The first picture shows the rooftop (right building) with the fort in the back followed by some pictures of I took on the street.
Next day in the morning at around 10 we left for the real Indian Holi festival we were so excited about to see. I think that everybody knows Holi and the colors, but in India it’s not just about celebrate and throw some colors on each other while getting drunken, it is about start over with people by painting each other’s faces. Finally, the meaning of Holi, “Hate out love in”, made totally sense to us – a nice tradition what make the western versions look bad.
The festival was intense, as every person painted and hugged us, but it was fine, still we looked like a painting afterwards.
