Holi festival of Colors
Yesterday we went to holi festival of colours in Utrecht in the Netherlands, but you could also call it Holi festival of Mud, due to to heavy rain. It was quit a blast I must say. Unfortunately it’s nothing like the one in India, not spiritual at all. This has nothing to do with spirituality but rather to have an excuse to party. Nevertheless a good opportunity to take some lovely pictures. It not every day you get the change to see people with a bunch of colourful powder faces. You can see more picture at our ( my boyfriend and mine) travel blog freeasbirds.com, but this is my selection of my own pictures.
So, ive’ been to Fes, Morocco during ramadan, it’s a bit of a different experience. Fes is having many tourists a year since it’s on the unesco world heritage list, but during ramadan it’s low season. Already people in the medina in Fes are not so keen on you taking pictures. So you can imaging when it gets around 18u they get a bit nervous. By then it’s almost 15 hours people didn’t drink, eat, or smoked a sigaret, so you get a lot of angry looks. I can imaging it’s hard thing to do, especially when it’s 45 degree outside and you are slightly dehydrated. Or if you are a heavy smoker like most men are in Morocco. The polite thing to do is not to eat and smoke in plain view. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my time there and I did manage to snap some pictures. So, inshallah.
