L is for Laundry

The letter at Alphabe-Thursday today is L and I offer you... laundry; yes, colorful laundry drying on a small mosque in Cotabato City on the southern Philippine island of Mindanao.

Unfortunately I did not get the name of this lovely little mosque, because I presumed it was on the sign you see in the top photo; but what it says is "Sahro Ramadan Al-Mubarak" which means Blessed is the Month of Ramadan (do correct me if that is a wrong translation, please).

 Cotabato, 2009

Reminds me of Malaysia,

Great that you have no problem "going" during your trips. Friends visiting China used to have the funniest stories.

The colours are beautiful but I'm really enchanted by those turrets, those buildings, so different scenery!

It looks like an important place, too important to be hanging laundry out to dry. Beautiful!~Ames

At first I thought this was some kind of child's toy set...but it really is a little mosque!

But I've got to admit that I never in my wildest dreams thought I would see a little mosque surrounded by colorful clothes drying in the sun!

It's quite amazing.

And I must say, that first shot especially is one "L" of a photograph!

More than a mosque it looks like a castle from an exotic fairy tale!

I clicked on each photo and was enchanted by an exotic world of beauty and color.

Wow.

I truly enjoyed my stop here today.

It was nice to take a trip without getting out of my flannel PJ's!

Thank you for linking.

I was so distracted by the spires(?) that I almost missed the laundry! :-)
