Maha Shivaratri

Catching up on my posts as the internet connection has been on and off recently, ever since we had a very bad hail storm on Thursday. The streets became rivers and in places we had up to 20 cm of ice along the roads, at which point in time part of the team were out at a Hindu temple... barefooted :o)

The hotel driveway 

Apparently the storm is seen as good omen since we were celebrating Maha Shivaratri on that day, which is the Great Night of Shiva. Funny thing is that on that day, next to the Hindu temples, you will find a whole bunch of food flavored crushed with marijuana , such as cookies, brownies, milkshakes, etc...

These pictures are not from that specific day, but they will give you an idea of what a Hindu temple looks like.



The inside court

I believe this is Krishna
