Happy Diwali!

Two days ago, we celebreated Diwali - festival of lights, which is India's biggest festival. Everything is covered in lights and the city looks absolutly beautiful, the best way to describe it would be Christmas on steroids! It is such an amazing sight. We decorated the house and did Rangoli (patterns with coloured flour) out the front, which was a lot of fun. We also lit lots of small oil lamps around the house - diya. We celebrated by going out to dinner, having a priest come to the house for the traditional prayers and of course, with lots of fireworks. It was a lovely way to end our time here in Udaipur.
