Holi... and a Party!
Holi with my host family was... crazy. Before we'd even started eating gujias (traditional Holi food) our host uncle visiting from Mumbai covered our faces in green paint. Then the day continued on the roof as everyone covered each other in wet holi paint. The women ripped the men's shirts off with their teeth! Seema and I both wore our matching masks that we'd bought when we went out to buy colors the night before. As we started weighing dry paint, Yash and Seema stopped us and said, "No... we only use wet paint". I can see why now, as wet paint stains and I haven't been able to wash the paint completely out of my hair and skin since. Ashley's hair is still bright pink! The next night we dressed up in sari for a big party Seema had on her roof.
