I have lived in Mumbai most of my life, and this is (quite literally) what I see when I look out of the window…

Mumbai

High rises, mostly in fading whites, creams and beiges… or buildings under construction, all in grey. Now don’t get me wrong. I totally love Mumbai and cannot imagine calling any other city my home. But ‘beautiful’ and ‘colorful’ are not the first words than come to mind when I think ‘Mumbai’.

So while driving to our hotel in Goa, I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw little bursts of colour peeping through the foliage. I had never before seen an entire building painted purple or orange. As we zipped passed them my head spun this way and that, trying to get a better look at them.

Rainbow Homes:

So the next day, hubby and me got onto a scooty and drove around to go looking for all these bright homes, and this is what we found.

Violet…

Indigo…

Blue…

And green…

Yellow…

Orange…

Hmmm… looks like I missed the red one. But I promise you, there WAS a red home too!

I loved the colour they added to the landscape and I don’t think I would have had the courage to use such bright colours on mine!
