Hi Nick (long time, how goes it? )

i was going to post something similar, given i have experienced problems. not during holi because i've been advised by my indian friends (male and female) that it's best to watch it from afar vs go out into the streets. it does depend on where one is however; one year i was in bhagsu with indian (male) friends during holi and watched them color each other. i avoid the colors myself.

WildernessDevil, please give due consideration to those women, both indian and travelers, who have been on the receiving end of problems from men in india. the only bull is that such things are happening at all.
Not all who wander are lost
