Didn’t see that one coming, but it’s true. The largest Holi Festival of Colors in the Western Hemisphere is held at the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in the small town of Spanish Fork, Utah. This year over 80,000 festival goers flocked to the temple’s hillside to enjoy traditional food, music and to get absolutely plastered in bright colors. The photos are here and information on the first Salt Lake City festival in April is here.
Check out photos from the Lathmar Holi festival earlier this month.
Also, a fascinating look at an all-girl military boarding school in Moscow by Sergey Kozmin entitled “Girl Soldiers.”
