Expected anticipation

Staff at the Town Planners Office must be quite a square lot.

I am thinking of their planning skills.

Maybe if they came out of their pathetic cubicles more often, their appreciation of the surrounding nature could perhaps be improved.

And incorporated in their plans. Instead of... in their designer pants.

When the population of the Capital island was near bursting at seams,

the Authorities ordered the closure of the closest resort island and

prepared it for an invasion... of people.


Viligili Island Maldives.

Locals were allowed to dream... of a 2020 vision and a promise of their own proud participation in an island, where the World simply refers as 'Paradise'.


And the planners unveiled yet another masterpiece.


This view... (perhaps the best from the island) called the Dump,

is reserved for garbage.

My advice: When in this neighbourhood, cover your nose!

    one of the most amazing sunsets with a mix of colors that are stunning and mix and glide into each other with such precision and perfection...probably this is only possible in a place such as the maldives with its coral blue seas...
