Photo Friday – Feeling Blue In Jodhpur, India

27 Jul

We’ve spent the last few days wandering around Jodhpur, India, which is often referred to as the “Blue City” because so many of the buildings in the area around the old fort have been painted blue.  The most common reason people give as to why this particular color was chosen is that it keeps the bugs away.  Whatever the reason, it’s very cool to walk around in a blue neighborhood, and even better to get an expansive view like the one from the top of the fort.
