Mr. Mitchell and I really enjoy the Festival of Colors at the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple. We have decided that God must also like the Festival of Colors because every year poor weather is predicted for that day, but it never follows through. Here is a little bit of our Festival of Colors history:
Festival of Colors 2008: friends - our first time we went with a group of friends and it was fairly crowded.
Festival of Colors 2009: dating - we went with post-semester abroad friends and it was even more crowded, but we got there so early we had a great spot and time to tour the temple.
Festival of Colors 2010: engaged - the previous years had been crowded enough they had two throwings this year. We went with Mr. Mitchell's brother, Joey, and his friend and an old mission companion of Mr. Mitchell's. (Notice the dwindling numbers in our group each year.) People were starting to behave a little immaturely at the very crowded festival.
Festival of Colors 2011: married - we have decided this was our last time at the festival. Every year people behave more stupidly and immaturely. This year the festival ran non-stop from 10am-6pm with throwings every two hours. We made it just in time for the throwing where they burned the witch. This year it was just the two of us.
