India Fest

As I’m back in uni for the next 9 months, getting around to do things is quite difficult. With homework and actual work, I feel like I’m barely treading water. But all will be well. But until then, these posts will be fewer and less interesting until summer finally hits again. However, I will try my best to keep this blog up. Because I actually enjoy it!

This week’s endeavors were much easier for me to make time for because it was part of my homework for a religions class. On Saturday, a few of us headed out to India Fest at the Lotus Temple down in Spanish Fork.

If you know me, anywhere there is culture and food, I’ll be there.

With food of course.

Inside the temple, there’s also a sweet little shop
