Bernie the Blue

Bernie the Blue gazes with utmost charisma at whoever chooses to face his blatantly blue wall in Jodhpur, western Rajasthan. I know that Bernie is an unlikely Muslim Indian name, but seeing as I was unable to ask him his proper name – owing to the fact that he is painted on a wall and thus lacks the requisite vocal chords to reply to such an inquiry – I’ve taken the liberty to assign an alliterative and silly name instead. 221 more words

Pretty shades of Blue

One of the many things I love about Morocco is that it’s so eye filling; She is never short of charming towns and cities. Hours spent on the road to get to one, to me is worth the journey. 372 more words

Morocco Relived - Chefchaouen 1


No Cars in Chefchaouen

Chefchaouen, the blue city was my favourite place in Morocco. Very narrow alleys that twisted and turned, went up and down and all painted blue, my favourite colour.
