Thaipusam, version 2.0

Saturday was the Hindu celebration of Thaipusam in Little India. If you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll recall that I went to this last year.

I wasn't going to go again this year because it's really one of those things that your stomach can only handle once.

Then, my friend Danielle reminded me about the sweet DSLR camera my husband got me for my birthday and said that it'd be a great way to get some good shots in. (She got one too this year.)

I caved. I desperately needed camera practice.

So we went and I am now sharing my favorite shots of the day:

I found the experience much more enjoyable on my weak stomach this time around. The shock factor was gone and it became all business as I was still learning my camera.

Even though I got another sunburn, I'm loving the shots I got.

Yay new camera!

I think I dug through your archives a long time ago and saw something about this. I remember telling myself I wanted to go to the next one.

I missed it! Didn't even realize that it was going on! Now I'm sad that I missed something so interesting.

Wow, I can see why you thought once was enough. It is amazing to see other cultures and you got to see it up close and personal. Very cool.
