Mandarin Orange Monday 93 - Rajasthani Dancers in Orange - May 12, 2014

During my first visit to Jaipur, a dear forensic nurse colleague and friend, Virginia
Lynch, and I ended our stay with dinner at a restaurant called Indiana.  It was a 
delightful evening with delicious food and an amazing show.  We had the best
table in the house, front and center, and watched mesmerized, as the women 
whirled, slowly at first, then more rapidly, as the tempo increased, balancing
various pots on their heads, including a grand finale with a metal urn set aflame.
I was dizzy just from watching.

While their dresses were a beautiful and varied array of colors, this one of orange
was perfect for today's theme.  What wonderful memories looking at these 
photographs brought back.

I am participating in
