I haven’t posted as much from my travels to India as I had hoped but I’m trying to rectify that recently as I just posted about a trip into the Jungle and a trip on the train from Bangalore (although haven’t written about Bangalore yet!). So hopefully I’ll get around to more of them. This photo is from the night of the Prophet Muhammad’s (SAWS) birthday where the city lit up the old city in celebration. I had not seen anything like this before and I hope to post some photos perhaps a photo essay about it. It seems it is a bit more of a recent phenomenon that started about 5 years ago. It was quite beautiful to see Mecca Masjid (Mosque) lit up in the evening time and all the people out there wandering around to see and experience it. I was there hanging on desperately to the back of my cousin’s motorcycle as we tried to weave through the crowds who were all trying to basically the same thing.
