Diwali Festival

This week India is celebrating "Diwali Festival".  Elder Wigg and I went up onto the roof of our house and watched in utter amazement!  The fireworks were everywhere in the city as far as the eye could see.  It was so beautiful and loud and crazy!

Below are a few of the beautiful sights from our patio above our apartment.

 This is a group of musicians who play for the holiday; they walk the streets and play.  
I took their picture and then they wanted to be paid for it.  Very interesting.

 People of the Hindu faith wash their front sidewalk each morning and repaint it with a fine sand dust or flour.  The artwork is quite spectacular and labor intensive, I would think.
