Frankfurt...Where Did the Color Go???

When we arrived at the Frankfurt airport I immediately noticed the lack of color. It was almost a black and white world. Where were all the colors that I'd gotten used to seeing during the past few weeks on the streets and in the homes of India? Suddenly I found myself surrounded with blue jeans and mostly "black"... Black shirts, black jackets, black pants and skirts... Black seemed to be the dominate color. Suddenly I missed all those Indian ladies in their brightly colored saris.

In another way it was somewhat comforting to see most people in clothing that is more familiar to me than it had been in India. Funny though, how I was in the small minority, wearing one of my new salvars.

I just never noticed the lack of color in my native attire before....or maybe it's missing more in Frankfurt than in Fulton, Missouri?
