Dandiya

For the next few days there is a festival celebrated in India with respect to the state of Gujarat. Gujarat traditional clothes and food are prepared and people dance, dance, and dance some more. I got invited by one of the hotel workers to join their staff party. It was a blast.

There were about 200 staff members as well as family members there. Many people were dressed up. I hung out with some of my favorite waiters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just like at your stereotypical junior high dance, nobody wanted to be the first one on the dance floor. Everyone sat down and ate, waiting for somebody to make the first move.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fortunately nobody took a picture my Indian style dancing. My skills are so good that there’s really no need for photographic evidence…

 

 

 

 

 

 

They handed out these cool shiny drumsticks. People were clacking them together with the beat. Lot of fun.
