Cham Dance, Darjeeling, India


Sometimes things don’t go according to plan, you see on day 5 of my trip the government announced the the 500 and 1000 notes were no longer going to be used, a way for them to weed out the tax evaders or something like that, this overnight announcement left the Indian public in dire straights, I heard many times, the rich are crying and poor are finally laughing, well that also left many tourist without money including myself, I was lucky enough to have some money exchanged but unfortunately not enough to travel to our destination planned. So we stayed in Darjeeling at went to the local monastery to witness this amazing ritual, Cham Dance, apparently only happens once every 12 years. I was lucky enough to join the local photography club with my mate, given front row seats to capture this colourful often amusing performance by the monks. This is the info I found online Cham Dance

Ahhhhh India, you just gotta go with it……always makes for pleasant surprises.
