goa 04/14 D3 – HOLI DAY FESTIVAL OF COLOURS , HILL TOP CLUB , CRAZY CRABS

TODAY WAS NUTS ! today is a festival day called ‘holi day’ . at midnight last night we kick started it burning the devil [see yesterdays blog post] . but today it started proper . its also referred to as the festival of colours – its one big crazy paint party ! from early in the morning till night everyone gets covered in paint , there is no escape and it can carry on for a few days after too at any given moment . the foreign anti paint moaners about indian festivals can sometimes be tiresome so they usually stay on their hotel balconies huddled round their fans moaning . and sharing tea bags . and cheese LMFAO . meanwhile the paint is supplied in powdered form in bags by people on the streets and the beach and chaos is the norm for the day . if you reach your paint limit and start looking muddy purple a quick dip in the sea cleans you off so you can start again as a new colour . even from 10am Anjuna for example was going crazy and people partying with music blasting , drink flowing , singing in the streets and some extreme partying especially from the Indians – they don’t half go for it in their brown underpants 😉 its a fun day and night , participation is expected and it resembles coloured warfare . there is no escape . beaches shacks clubs streets cars shops bikes everywhere …
