In Search Of Jasmine

Yesterday I went to the market in Little India in search of fresh Jasmine flowers for the house. It was a quick morning trip whilst my kids were at school. I was there and back within an hour but wow was it crowded and hot! Today is Deepavali (festival of lights), a main holiday for Hindus and a bit like our Christmas in terms of bigness, so the streets were teeming with people gathering all of their last minute holiday shopping. There was so much colour and madness going on and I had so much fun taking pictures along the way. I so love the markets here for their bewildering colours and contrasts.
