India has spring fever and nowhere celebrates it with more vigor than Mathura India.
We hooked up with our friends Rebecca and Julian from Toronto to experience India’s most colourful festival.
The Preparation Begins!
Becca has wanted to see Holi since the time she was 12 and Julian being a huge history buff explained the story of Krishna, the temples that we visited and the meaning of Holi in great detail.
Stumbling into a Great Experience
It was the energy and the celebration that kept us interested.
We walked through the town in search of the events and stumbled across a small courtyard. A man beckoned us to join in the festivities and never being one to refuse and invitation, we accepted. Instantly we were welcomed with open arms and smears of colour.
The four of us were mini celebrities. Television camera’s for all of India were covering the energetic dances in the courtyard and we were all encouraged to join in.

But what we were really excited to see was the sculpture of a whale skeleton that someone put together years ago.
