Writings on the wall is in quotes here because there is nothing tragic about these writings as the popular saying goes. Rather, I was interested in the actual writings on the wall in Old Town Mombasa – the graffiti.
I love old towns. This particular area reminded me of Stone Town, Zanzibar. The similar narrow streets, winding paths, old buildings and my favorite – the ornately, uniquely carved doors. Most distinctive about Mombasa’s Old Town though is the momentous Fort Jesus with its great architecture and history, just looking at the structure brought back memories of high school history lessons (cramming how Vasco da Gama discovered the sea route to India and so on and so forth).
Take a look at the pictures below. I have included a picture with one of the Zanzibar doors as well for comparison (this was from a trip I took back in June 2014).
I’d absolutely love to hear your thoughts. Don’t hesitate to share your comments and experiences in the reply section below. Xx.
