Mela festival.

For those unsure of what a Mela Festival is, it's a Asian gathering, a gathering of events, music, arts and crafts, their very flavoursome South Asian cuisine and much more you'd find at a festival but to all of their cultural style. I have been to festivals each year since i was about 12 years old. I think they're great and such an exciting insight into other ways of life. Seeing what types of things they do is so inspiring, just very different than 'my' norm, i love culture and learning more about it. Today i had a small piece of Henna tattooed o Mela nto my hand, i bought some bindis as i think they truly beautiful and such a lovely adornment. I also hand made this cloth with various paints and stamps. I love the elephants and all the bright colours, it makes me happy. This is going to be hung on my wall. 

If you haven't ever been to a Mela, i very much recommend going to one, you'll have a great time,
