  2. Hi bhavna
    what was it that Gandhi answered when asked what he thought about western civilization…it would be nice! your posts never cease to take my breath away!

  3. Hi Olivia! 30 years…India has changed so much since then … but yes, the heritage architecture is still intact!
    Thank you so much for visiting me…do drop by again! 🙂

  4. Hey Bhavna dahling…love the one with the blue door.
    Turkey is on my must see list. Istanbul could be on my horizon for next year. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
    Delicious post, as usual.

  5. She sure is, Constance…i was spell bound by the depth of some of her architectural photographs..

    Do check out the mountain images on her site…she has a couple more there..

  6. Yesterday I ate in a more than delicious French restaurant in Montreal called La Porte (The Door). The name of the restaurant is in reference to a fabulous old door they purchased in Morocco. It has the same presence that the beautiful views you offered us. The architecture is splendid.

  7. The picture on my post was a painting by Robert Genn, who is Canadian, I think…thanks for reminding me, as I forgot to put the reference!

    What a gorgeous post…lovely photos and architecture. I need to catch up on more of your posts!!

    Thanks for stopping by! Terri xo
