|Celebrating Holi in Busan|
In early April, a friend of Anna's from the U.K. came to visit us and we went on a little weekend trip to Busan together. It just happened to be the same weekend as the big Holi Hai Festival, hosted by Busan's Indian community.
If you're not familiar with Holi, it's a Hindu holiday held in the spring in India and Nepal and is meant to celebrate the end of winter and the symbolic triumph of good over evil. The festival involves everyone arriving in white clothing and then throwing bags of colorful powder and paint all over each other, dancing, forgiving and forgetting, loving your neighbor and basically just having fun.

If you find yourself in Busan next April, don't miss out on Holi! If you go, be sure to register on this website to ensure that you get tickets for food and powder (they did start to run out last time and prioritized people that registered online.)
