Bloom-busters in Dutch-istan!!
After all the greenery, we decided to treat our eyes with some colors. The best option was Tulip Time Festival at Holland, MI. The city of Holland was founded by Dutch Americans and is best known for it's Dutch heritage. Throughout the city, the streets were decked up with tulips on both the sides. Every house added to the festivity with it's bright and beautiful gardens.
Our first stop was Nelis' Dutch Village, where we were Welkomed in style.
Everything was so 'Dutchy' about the place - the people and their costumes, dance, ambiance, windmills, wooden shoe carving and candle making.
If the above picture made you inquisitive about the HOWs of carving candles, this video is a must watch!! See how a simple candle is dipped in hot wax of various colors to make layers and is then carved to create such beautiful candles.
Hey.. didn't I say it was Tulip Festival!! So, where are the Tulips? See the pics below unless you get completely 'Tulip-ed' (term coined by Abhishek Shriwatri)
In the pictures: Sanket, Tanya, Abhishek, Payal and infinite Tulips.
Rush to Holland... only 4 days left!!
