13.25 ( beijing time)
i take the bus 20. the driver needs to recharge his phone. he stops a little longer at one bus stop. walks down to the adiacent street stall and buys a recharger ( universal recharger because it connects directly to the battery and not to the phone, in this way it ignores all the different types of phone recharging slots. whay do not we use it? not too consumistic?). at the same time the ticket boy has just bought lunch.
nearby another stall he slows down, the ticket boy brings the recharger to a shop and jumps on the bus while it is still moving. in 1-2 hours his phne will be ok. the potential of informal microeconomy.
i go to see a tomb just outside the center. few things in such a climate give a better image of the human presence than a rose garden. it seems that important building first are a chromatic statement: toi diversify from the light brown of the ground the mausoleum is covered with white blue tile, green lacquered tiles, the wood is painted with a emerald green. in the meanwhile tourist groups walk by. at a certain moment i think in front of the square there are 20,000 euros of nikon cameras.
i notice one thing, the tourist does not observe he strolls.
some building are made only with bricks. the bricks are composed in different patterns creating a monochromatic and monomaterial decoration. somehow it seems more ethical: it uses to the fullest one element and does not disturb the eye, it intrigues it.
muslim architecture is always impressive for its use of light, of filthering light, openess and serialization.
