Katmandu living

the van de Wiel/Schou Hansen family blog

This weekend it was Holi and we went outside Kathmandu for a BBQ with some friends. Holi is the festival of color to honor the demoness Holika. Most Nepalis meet with friends and family and throw colored powder and water on each other.

We had a very civilized Holi where the kids stayed away from colored powder (this stuff is supposed to be quite toxic) and only had a massive water fight. Water pistols in all colors and shapes had been bought for the occasion and an abundant supply of water was there. The adults stayed away from the fight and enjoyed bbq'ed beef and sausages and a beer.
