Gandhi Bazaar

Yesterday afternoon, Tuesday, March 10, our GSE team visited the Gandhi Bazaar with our Rotary club hosts. Lots of merchants were selling fresh flower garlands, fresh fruits and vegetables and a myriad of other items.

These three guys were painted up because of the special Hindu Spring "Holi festival," a "festival of colors" celebrated throughout India with lively parties and people throwing colored powder and water at each other. Drats - I didn't have the right outfit for such a party!

We posed with some rather stiff but lovely sari models along the street...

Hey! Where's the guava fruit salesman when ya' want some fresh fruit?!
