I’ve written previously about the festival of Holi (here and here) and what it all means. Really, it’s a day of being as mischievous as you can, gather with friends and family, and generally have a ton of fun.
The following are a few photos from my SIRC friends …. sure looks like their celebrations of Holi lived up to it’s raucous reputation!

I love this shot of Rozina, Subash and their friend celebrating Holi in Colorado, USA. I wonder what their neighbours thought?!

And to show how really crazy it gets in Kathmandu, I picked this up from today’s Kathmandu Post!
