A welcoming banner


On the final day they had made a wonderful banner with hundreds of flowers and green leaves to hang over the entrance to the yagya stala.  This was very typical of the great effort that was invested in the facility and which would have been impossible in the US because of the cost of flower and labor!

There is a great charm to a culture which will invest this kind of time just to make sure that the first moment that you arrive has a moment of delight.
