Nepal know$ how to celebrate. Each year when the harve$t $eason i$ over and fall is $etting in the fe$tival$ $tart. And they la$t through the winter. Dewaly ju$t ended, but not before I had a chance to walk around and capture $ome of the colorful Mandala$ that are made so Lak$hmi, the godde$$ of wealth, come$ to be$tow fortune$ upon her devotee$

 

For the mo$t part the colored powder, also known as Holi, come$ from the$e $hop$:
