I made it to this year’s India Day Festival held at the Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) campus.  The weather was warm, the crowd was friendly, and the food was great.  I didn’t get a chance to see any of the dancers, but there’s always next year.  In the meantime, this is how it looked from the outside.

AFTERTHOUGHT:  I am starting to wonder if I got there a bit too early.  I arrived about 12:30 and left at about 3:00.  I can’t help but wonder if there would have been more ‘cultural’ events going on outside as the afternoon sun receded a bit.  Again, there’s always next year.

From today’s Daily Prompt, we get:

Ring of Fire Do you love hot and spicy foods or do you avoid them for fear of what tomorrow might bring?

See what I did here?

It’s funny ‘cuz it’s exaggerated.

I actually just had Indian food last night, so I don’t mind some spice – up to a point.  BUT, a few years ago, a local Thai restaurant asked me if I want my food “spicy” or “Thai spicy.”  I choose the latter.  Foolishly.  My tongue burned with every bite and I was practically shaking.  I think it was even worse when I went back and attempted to conquer the leftovers the next day.  I seem to remember my stomach and intestines filing a restraining order against me after that, too.  So, again, I like spicy food, but only up to a certain level.  All things in moderation, yes?
