Nandgaon, the village on the hill

Nandgaon is really a small village on a hill with the temple in the center and right at the top……winding alleys leading up up…..(only about 9000 people live here)

not everyone was involved in the festivities…or maybe he was just resting so he could be part of it?

this is one way to make potato chips….you put them out in the sun for a while….I guess one condition is that you live in a country where outside means oven temperatures !

this was one of those villages that I wouldn’t mind coming back to under calmer circumstances…meaning not during holi.
