Sometimes in India, especially during the monsoons, you will find yourself unexpectedly crashing some lovely strangers' wedding. It is one of the simple joys of traveling during the wedding season here and, sometimes unfortunately, unavoidable. We almost missed our train out of Pushkar a couple years ago because a few coinciding weddings were blocking all the roads into and out of town. Indian weddings are also exceptionally loud and extend late into the night, causing some major sleep deprivation if your guest house sits next door to the festivities... But the unconstrained joy of these events is hard to resent!
