Happy Diwali

During the last three nights of my stay in Bangalore, I lost a good part of my hearing temporarily due to the professional pyrotechnic fireworks that the locals were setting off for the Diwali festival. It was fun, noisy and dangerous but that's India :)

Diwali is always a major deal in the UK too. November 5th (Guy Fawkes night) seems to signal the start of four weeks of aerial bombardment and general assault on sleep and hearing in London, which is a major pain if you have pets. Sydney doesn't seem to go in for this sort of thing, really.
