It was fun celebrating Diwali in India. The decorations were amazing. So many lights set up all over the city. It was like Christmas on steroids. Everyone gives out sweets and gifts. At night I took a drive around the city to see all the decorations. Really something.

The one thing I could have had less of was the fireworks. No, these are not professionally put on fireworks. This is everybody and their brother going outside and lighting off roman candles and other ear shattering loud fireworks. Even four year old kids are outside with no supervision lighting them off. Very different than in the US.







The hotel staff was going nuts lighting them off. They had way too much fun. Dangerous, dangerous fun.
