    1. Actually I was thinking that it looked like a Rajasthani city! :)

  2. I love your pics! And I've to admit - I am a bit envious that you get to live (and work!, presumably?) in one of my fav destinations :) I remember visiting Orvietto, and it looked quite like Ostuni - like it'd tumble off the hill any moment!

    Cheers

    1. I agree Manmeet that I do get to live my dream!
      Ostuni is less like Orvieto that has a cliff like drop and is more refined (better houses, beautiful shining cathedral ..), Ostuni is much more mediterranean, more rough while the hill is gentler.

    1. Not just Rio, but many favelas in big cities in Brazil have that look. Some of them look really dangerous as if they are going to crash. In Ostuni, it is better :)

  7. स्वप्नलोक या मायानगरी के जैसे बने घर. शायद ग्रीस और तुर्की में भी ऐसी दिखनेवाली कुछ जगह हैं.
    आजकल परिदृश्य में नए और पुराने का घालमेल मज़ा किरकिरा कर देता है. इसका अहसास मुझे हाल में ही हुआ जब एक मंदिर की फोटो लेना मुश्किल हो गया क्योंकि उसके आगे-पीछे टॉवरों की भरमार हो गयी है. लगता है अब फोटोशोप सीखना ही पड़ेगा.

    2. मेडिटेरेनियन सागर के आसपास, तुर्की, ग्रीस, टुनिज़ी, मोरोक्को, हर जगह इस तरह के शहर मिलते हैं. यहाँ पुराने हिस्सों से छेड़खानी करना मना इसलिए वहाँ पर पुराने हिस्से के बीच में नये पुराने का मिलन तो नहीं होता, हाँ बाहर के हिस्सों पर होता है!
