Photo of the Week: Holi that was not quite Holi, but fun anyway!

Last weekend, Raquel and I, together with some friends of ours attended the Holi Festival of Colours in Joburg’s Mary Fitzgerald Square. Initially before I booked the tickets I assumed it would something more Hindu, but in the end it was more like an electronic music festival where you could throw coloured powder. However, the Hindu festival of Holi is regarded as a celebration of the Colors of Unity & Brotherhood – an opportunity to forget all differences and indulge in unadulterated fun, so in that sense this festival wasn’t too far off, despite being celebrated at the wrong time of year. Despite it not being the festival I was expecting it was a good day out which we all enjoyed!

The faces of Colour!
