S2L77: Holi, Festival of Colors

Agra, India
March 4-5, 1977

Up at dawn for the long drive from Benares to Agra, normally a two-day drive being made in one because of the Holi festival of colors. We spent the day virtually trapped in the hotel as Indians celebrated outside by throwing dye-colored flour on all passers-by.
