Govinda Mandals

Ever since I arrived in India I have been having the most wild and vivid dreams. It must have something to do with eating spicy food at night. In the U.S. I remember dreams once in a while, but they’re never that interesting. Here every night is an adventure to try and recap throughout the day.

Today was the Govinda Mandals festival. Different neighborhoods compete against each other for monetary prizes contained in a piñata raised up 30 feet in the air. The teams have to create human pyramids to reach the prize. It should be noted that people are doing this in the middle of busy intersections. Pretty wild.
