This afternoon I attended AEIN's (Aide à l'enfance de l'Inde et du Nepal - an NGO) Indian and Nepalese celebration. This yearly event was previously known as the "Indian bazaar". The proceeds go to the different projects that the NGO supports in India and Nepal. They contribute to improving the local people's living conditions, empowering women, and giving people access to education, amongst others.
When I got there the audience was captivated by several dance and singing performances that were on.
My mum, who was with me, and I bought a couple of goodies (not pictured): jewellery boxes, hand painted wine gift bags and soap.
This was my lunch: two vegetable samosas.
A few people got henna tattoos. I have never had one but maybe I will at the next opportunity.
