Today is a public holiday In India for – what else but Good Friday. Whilst we expect this in Australia, it caught us by surprise and reminded us of the need to always stay flexible and expect the unexpected in India. So we ditched our plans to distribute flyers for the exhibition (because everything was closed) and joined some of the locals by heading off to the Mansa Devi temple, a pilgrim spot for the goddess Chandi (see photo below) who gave her name to the city Chandigargh. We were the only Western tourists in a sea of Indian faces, many of whom stared long and hard at the Western dude with the long white beard.
Tomorrow is the big day. Full moon rising and a few last minute finishing touches to all the artworks in the hotel room. Do I look stressed?
