Finding the Beautiful in the Mundane

 Sometimes it can seem like just another international flight.  Just another international hotel chain.  Another city.  Another bad hotel view.So, you go out searching. Searching on that first day for a little bit of the beauty in your surroundings, while you are still trying to figure out what defines beauty in this particular place. Amid the honking horns and pollution and dirty streets, one can usually find it.

A colorful yellow mosque doorway

A fountain with intricate tiling

A substantial door knocker

An intriguing sign in the medina
