Good idea irishcolleen, I was covered from head to toe this year, all that was visable was the whites of my eyes and although I put on my oldest gear in preparation, it was very hard to remove the dye.

You are right tony and I have to admit afer many years of being the victim I threw the first punch, I went to the beach armed with bags of colour, and sneacked up on everyone who had caught me off guard the previous year, but come midday I looked like a bag of melted jelly babies,
It's best just to go prepared and also to go with the flow as there really is no escape.

On a cautionary note several Goan friends have expressed concerns that it is now getting a bit out of hand and some of the local youths are going over the top, especially once the Fenni takes a hold. Also in past years there has been a lot of talk in the Indian press regarding some of the dyes and powders being carcogenic !! It's not my cup of tea but as long as my shack owner keeps them out of his shack it's o.k. by me. I much prefer the festival in Thailand where everyone gets soaked with water and flour, the whole population seems to take part in it, and it seems much more fun for everyone, and it doesnt ruin your clothes.

Hi All... Holi was fantastic fun this year... We took down huge amount of 'colour' and shared it out to all the children and then quickly ducked for cover... One thing you must remember is to cover your camera with plastic, otherwsie you camera gets as coloured as some of the pictures it takes... I have uploaded 30 photos from this year...

Here's a sample, click the link below for more....

Let me know what you think of them... Has anyone else got any good photos to add from this year?

Love the photo's Rob, the little blue "Smurf" is so cute!! I wouldn't fancy the job of bathing them all before bedtime, I imagine there are still a few rainbow coloured kids running around now.
