This week’s travelogue journeys past the obvious differences between the Maldives’ two cities and onto the more subtle observations…such as tourism development and pelvis analogies (which would actually leave Gan in a very awkward position!!).
As shown last week, initial observations perhaps say as much about where you’ve been as where you are, so comparing the Maldives’ two ‘cities’ was perhaps inevitable.
After so long in the chaotic fug of Male’, a breath of fresh southern air really seems like a breath of fresh air and, as if by some kind of Cinderella magic, that Milo packet blowing across the road has become a toad, or a shrew, or maybe a leaf (though my slippers are thankfully not made of glass).
