Mela Fun!

Today we went to a really fun Craft Mela (Festival). It was in the state below us. After a fun trip via rickshaw, we made it to the Mela. It was HUGE!! We spent almost the whole day at the fair!

They had crafts and fun performances. There were a lot of performances from the colorful state below and West of us. The ladies did some really cool dances.
Mom had a lot of fun meeting the ladies that did the singing and dances.
There were a lot of kids performing and dancing - they were really cute :) Some of the guys in the crowd really go into some of the dancing - it reminded us a lot of M-town :) It was seriously one of the most colorful fairs I have ever been too! They decorated some bicycle rickshaws and they gave rides through the fair - they looked so funny!! There were some awesome camels... I like this pic b/c the guy in the background is making a face that looks a lot like this camel :)

How neat... Doesn't look much like a fair would here. I bet your parents really enjoyed seeing that. I know I would just enjoy the experience. I love the way the people are just so willing to let you take pictures of them. I mean here I'd be afraid to ask someone. ha ha ha... I love it....

That picture of your mom with the dancer is so cool! What an experience for them. That fair looks really fun - how long is it for?
