KAPOORS ON THE ROAD

I think I fell in love with bougainvillea and hibiscus flowers the first time I encountered them in 1971 when I went to Nigeria with CUSO (Canadian University Service Overseas) as a volunteer teacher. I have to control myself from taking photos of every glorious array of these flowers that I see.

My fascination with door knockers began early in our retirement travels, and I’m beginning to amass quite a collection of photographs of some very interesting ones. However, I’ve never seen such a wide variety of specimens as I found in Cartagena! What a thrill,

And lastly, like many other travellers, I’ve been taking photos of interesting doors, windows and doorways.

We’re travelled to a significant number of old historic cities and towns, but nowhere did all three of these keen interests of mine come together like they did in Cartagena. For that reason, I just had to share some of my photos with you.

What are my favourites from Cartagena you might ask? Well, the golden crab on the bright red door, the bougainvillea above the lavender door, and the triangular window looking into the azure pool of water. Which were you’re favourites? I’d love to know!
