    Loved the pictures from around the world. I have seen many of them before but it was lovely to see them all on the same clip.

    Re the Spot the Difference ….

    1. & 4.  No couldn’t find it but when it was shown, I was kicking myself because it was so obvious.

    8. & 9. The difference was already circled then the same pics were shown in the answer.

    All others in between, spotted quite quickly.

    All good fun though. Thank you Val.

    Jodhpur, India – The Blue City

    The color of Jodhpur tells the history – and makes it legend – of a populace who shaped a paradise in the heart of the heat and sandstorms of Rajasthan
    Blue color have been associated with Lord Shiva and there were lot of Brahmin followers of Shiva , they consider blue color to be sacred.
    Blue color has psychologically most soothing effect.
    Blue color reflects most of the heat .Thus this could be the most important reasons for keeping home cooler in the city of jodhpur which is the city of India receiving highest solar power per unit area .
    This blue color paint is mixture of limestone and Copper Sulphate mixed in water and applied directly to the walls inside as well as outside homes thereby copper sulphate imparting its Rich Blue color .
    Since the limestone is easily available in the vicinity of jodhpur due to this is the cheapest option .

    There are two possible geographical reasons for color being blue
    a) Copper is an abundant mineral in rajasthan thus copper sulphate may be easily available at that time .

    b) Indigo Plantation :- There have been historical evidences of Indigo Plantation in Jodhpur and nearby region .Indigo dye thus have been used for imparting blue color

    Lots of interesting and funny things.  The Longaberger basket building I have seen in Ohio. If I remember right it has closed down and the baskets are quite collectible.
