Flashback Friday 58

Today I thought I would continue with my Festival of Colors theme and flashback to the first year I went. March 2007. I went with my good friend and roommate at the time, Monica and a couple of her Minnesota friends (Sarah, who was in town and Katie).

We had a lot of fun... obviously since I continued going back, but I remember we didn't get there in time to buy color. Back then... they actually ran out. It is amazing too because I look at these pictures and it almost makes me laugh because it was not crowded at all compared to what it is now. Back then.... a lot of people still had never heard about it and so what you see in these pictures is all there was there... pretty amazing how fast the word spread. It is now the largest Holi Festival in the Western Hemisphere! It is also amazing to see how I look at the Festival then and now. I get more and more color coated on me every year. Makes for harder clean up, but makes for better pictures.

That is pretty amazing how much it has changed. You look like you have just been using some sidewalk chalk. Ha!

Hey! I didn't even see this post til now! I was also thinking about how much it has changed over the years! I don't like it so crowded, I miss how it used to be! I like the black and white pic of you, me, sarah. and katie. I'm stealing it. I am done working this week for good so we'll actually need to finally get together!
