    מאטורה

    March 31, 2016 in India

    מקום קדוש לקרישנה כמו פושקאר, אבל גם מרכז תרבותי בודהיסטי חשוב עד המאה החמישית, שיווהלינגות למכביר במוזיאון כמו גם הפסל של קנישקה שלמרבה רוע מזלו איזה ערבי הוריד לו את הראש עם גרזן, איזה הפתעה.

    Happy (messy) Holi

    March 25, 2016 in India

    Ok, so Holi was 80% different from what I expected. Big processions with people dancing, playing nicely with colours, colourful dressed up children, elephants, music and songs - did I see any? Hell no :) It seemed to me there are few rules for Holi - try to throw colours into someone's face whether they want it or not; if you don't have any colours - get some water and make it even messier; hug all women and grab their boob after. I was advised it's better not to get into the crowd and stay outside, but didn't see a chance to make it work - it was always people around trying to get you. Am I upset it wasn't the way I wanted to be? No. It was still interesting, colourful, cheerful experience, though would stay in a small village with 20 people next time :) Vrindavan for another day just to visit some temples and know the town a bit better, and back to Delhi tomorrow. Almost done with India.. Need some quiet time on the beach, got tired a little of all those experiences, faces, places, but will miss India for sure..Read more

    Hare Krishna Hare Rama Vrindavan

    March 25, 2016 in India

    The town I'm staying at now, Vrindavan, is the town where according to hinduism Lord Krishna was born and spent his childhood days. I didn't see a lot in north India but so far it's my town no 1! Simple, friendly, beautiful, quiet (just getting extremely busy during Holi), covered in narrow streets where it's nice to get lost and be greeted by monkeys. Everyone will advise to hide your glasses in the pocket as apparently monkeys been trained to take them off and someone will appear in a minute to ask for 50 rupees if you want to get them back (ha!). So I spent this day being blind. But even in this situation Vrindavan surprised me in a good way. Lots of temples to see (my favourite - ISKCON), beautiful evening worship at Kesi ghat on the Yamuna river, and the way back surrounded by kids after my 'hair do'. After such a nice day I'm ready to catch the train and head back to Delhi tomorrow. By for now, Vrindavan!Read more
