virupaksha car festival – hampi

Was beyond thrilled to be in Hampi today for the Virupaksha Car Festival – the largest celebration in Hampi, and my very first Indian festival experience.  Two huge chariots were decorated and pulled through the main bazaar as bazillions of people threw bananas at them (to mark Hanuman’s birthday, we were told).

Such a colourful, crazy day – one that ended perfectly (quietly) with a kingfisher and excellent company at the guest house by the river.
