These are our entries for Marianne’s (East of Málaga blog) CBBH Photo Challenge. The first one was taken on our trip to Lanjarón yesterday, as we waited for the bus back to Órgiva. The chairs were outside a block of rented apartments. Stepping inside the cool, dark hallway was like going back several decades.
The second photograph was taken by S on Paharganj in Delhi, India and shows jalebi sellers. Jalebi is a very popular sweet across the Indian Subcontinent. The equivalent of churros here in Spain!
Blogs we like:
Here are two blogs we’ve been following recently. The first – Cemetery Travel: Adventures in Graveyards Around the World – was actually promoted by Marianne herself (see, spreading the love is working and our followers will now be aware of it too!). Cemeteries are interesting places and we have one of the world’s best in London; Highgate Cemetery. We asked blog owner Loren whether she had read Audrey Niffenegger’s novel, ‘Her Fearful Symmetry’, which is based there.
The second is the blog of Caroline Angus Baker – a New Zealand author with a love of sailing. A recent post caught our eye. It was about the great flood of Valencia in 1957. Visitors to the city will be aware of the (now dry) River Turia but the story behind the flood and the photographs are amazing.
