A collection of the colour white from around the world.
Belgium in the spring is time for all sorts of white asparagus specialities like this White Asparagus & Smoked Salmon Salad in the Cambrinus Restaurant in Bruges. 1000 white marble Buddhas can be found on the ‘Street of Stone Carvers’ in Mandalay, Myanmar. Two unusual white orchids in the Singapore Botanical Garden. A white horse grazing at Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
The Jain Temple at Ranakpur in India’s province of Rajasthan is totally carved out of white marble, as is the Taj Mahal. White beans in the market in Noia, Spain. These beans turn up in all sorts of delicious Fabada stews throughout northern Spain. White mountain goats shedding their winter coats in July up on Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park, Washington. The white chalk ‘fish clay’ cliffs of Stevns Klint in Denmark. The ‘White Room’ in the Guinness Storehouse at St. James’s Gate Brewery was designed to cater to your sense of smell, with each vat giving off the rich aromas of hops, malt and other beer basics (Dublin, Ireland). Homemade chalk drying in a monastery in Laos. Very few people had access to any form of currency so everything was gathered from the land and made by hand, including this chalk which would be used on hand-made slates to teach young Buddhist monks how to write. El pañuelo blanco (the white kerchief) is a symbol of the Madres de la Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The women march once a week wearing photos of their lost children who were ‘disappeared’ between 1976 and 1983. The very memorable White Rose Dumplings, part of the Royal Vietnamese cuisine, only available in Hoi An, and worth travelling all the way to Hoi An for.White chalk cliff formations on the Alabaster Coast of Normandy, France.White sand dollar on black volcanic sand beach in Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. Another white horse, this one with a Mexican look, up in the hills above Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Beautiful but heartbreaking was about lost children. The parents will never know what has happened to them.
We talked to one of the madres and she told us that if her daughter was still alive she would have been the same age as me. That really hit home…
Yes, it is tragic.
Oh what a marvelous world gallery you have for us this week 😀 😀

Congratulations! I have selected your post to be featured on CFFC.
I sure hope you have a wonderful week.
I particularly love the Alabaster Coast, and the mountain goats. You have a great variety of shots here. 🙂
I tried to find ‘white’ in places and things that were unique to each country.
You went a lot of places. 🙂
I love this beautiful collection!
