basant bbq

BBQ on the roof,,,,,,,but don't fall off! Basant Festival Review

Okay, so Basant is a blast! but you really do have to be careful not to fall off the roof. It happens in tens on basant weekend, very sad really. Many people host BBQ's on their roof, play music and people just come and fly kites through the nite. It's nothing to go to several basant parties in one nite. make sure you buy PLENTY of kites. they are cheap and it can get really fun and you dont' want to run out. Oh, and make sure you buy tape for your hands, you're going to need it!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Kite String - Lahore

Kite String

Sort of basant

While this falls under basant, it's not basant that you'll miss, it's seeing something you've probably never seen and that's the men coloring the kite string. Or perhaps I'm the only one easily impressed and amused. I found this really really interesting and the men LOVED having their pictures taken, especially when I took copies to them. It's a hard job they do ALL DAY for WEEKS gearing up for Basant.
