I got a right to sing the blues

I love the colour of this wall. I see it often in Khayelitsha, both as an interior and an exterior paint. While we are waiting for Zanele’s house to be built, we either meet at Vuyelwa’s house with its zingy apple-meets-lime green walls, or at Zanele’s boyfriend’s house, where the calming aqua walls create a illusion of cool serenity in spite of the stifling heat in the uninsulated shack.

Aqua? Celestine blue? Duck egg? Light Turquoise? This wall by any other name feels just as cool!
