Travelogue: By Country | By Date India | May 2001  


Flowers on a string. One of the amazing things about India are the floral decorations. Cars carrying newlyweds are hung with nets of individually strung flowers. Marigold garlands are everywhere, and particularly in the South, women wear jasmine garlands in their hair. Even tiny little hole in the wall shops often have a fresh garland over a picture of one god or another.
