Christine and I rushed from morning appointment and manage to reach by 12 noon. Everyone looked ‘clean’ so we know we have not missed the event.

We still have time to purchase some ammunitions (‘coloured powders’) and water gun.

Later on we found that the water gun was a little bit too small compare to the bucket and hose.

I am very glad to see all ages participated on the Festival of Colours without barrier. One visitor even brought the ‘holi dog’ to join the festival.

If you like to take pictures, the best is to use a wide angle lens and get close to the crowd. It was fun to experience the happenings on the ground. Let yourself be smeared by coloured powder and gotten wet.

Luckily my camera was weather sealed so I don’t have to use shrink wrap or plastic bag to cover the camera. That was important to allow to me to have fun.

I could rinse the colour off my camera but I couldn’t get rid of the colour on my face. I suspect someone brought own ‘oil painting colour’ (not purchasing the water soluble powder sold at the temple). My forehead is now red and green in colour.
