Nostalgic for Portuguese blues

Azuleijos, the blue tiles influenced by Portuguese tiles, are still visible, though in only a few parts of Goa. Recent years have seen a revival of interest in things Portuguese, now with less of the colonial smear of the past and what some describe as "Lusostalgia".

As Goa turns 50, a Goan looks back

On the 50th anniversary of Goa's liberation from Portuguese rule, a Goan looks back at the relics of its colorful and troubled history. Photographer Frederick Noronha is into journalism, book publishing, photography, and cyberspace. He has a collection of 40,000 copylefted and sharable photos online at http://photosfromgoa.notlong.com and dreams of building an archive of old Goa photos.
