I spent the first Holi Festival of my life in Bundi. I researched quite a bit about this festival before I came to India. I knew I wanted to experience Holi in northern India and I knew that I didn’t want to go to the major hotspots like Vrindavan, the big cities like Delhi or the tourist traps like Pushkar.
That I ended up in Bundi, is more of a random thing though. I just was nearby… The festival itself was one of the most fun/crazy things I ever experienced in my life! Everybody was smiling and enjoying themselves. It was also much more respectful than I anticipated. I was prepared to get colorful, but I took quite a while before the locals got that. Onc they saw that I don’t mind the color, though, there was no holding back the Indians.
