Holi one color festival

As most of you are aware there was a Holi color festival in Cape Town and JHB which I was very bummed about missing but then found out that there are so many Indians in Korea that they organized one here too!
Basically the festival is a Hindi festival to celebrate love and peace and you dance around while throwing multi colored paint at everyone. It was such a blast and the Indians were so involved and overwhelmed that the festival turned out so well! I would love to visit India during the holi fest time, must be such fun! 
The festival was held on Haeundae beach in Busan and it was mostly a clear day although the wind was pretty chilly so we had to dance and run around a lot to keep ourselves warm! Haha
I didn't think it would be such a success as I wasn't sure how many foreigners would come out and join the event but it turned out spectacularly! 
The colors looked amazing against the white and the Koreans definitely thought we were crazy dancing around throwing paint at each other, they were videoing us and taking so many photos I felt like an animal in a zoo. It was highly entertaining!
