today is one thing – HOLI DAYYYYYYYY ! it goes completely nuts as everyone celebrates this day by colouring each other from head to toe in powdered paint . shops and kids on the street will sell you bags of this powder in any colour … as long as it is shocktastic ! wear old clothes is all i will say hahaha ! someone even painted a cow down chapora village [bit much that IMO but it was still a bizarre thing to see] . this happens each year around march .
from 9am in the morning music blasts out from street partys , and anjuna [and most other places] become one big party . the streets come alive by day , even the beach .. everyone gets painted , and at night it happens in the clubs too . its fantastic fun . when you could not get any more coloured and end up looking a murky purple colour , around the next corner you might get sabotaged by a gang of kids with buckets of water and water pistols , or you jump in the sea [which itself at times might be orange etc!] … and it starts all over again in a new colour haha . of course you always get one lemon who paints themselves and it just looks fake , and that doesnt count at all – people paint each other not themselves . embrace it or stay at home on your balcony that day and be miserable hahaaa !!
i will say no more … let the good times roll !
