344: Windows in Diamantina
In the center of the historic town of Diamantina you will find many houses in the colonial style. The majority of these houses are plastered white, but there are also some houses that are plastered in a pastel color: light yellow, light green, light blue, or light pink, for example. The window and door frames, on the other hand, are painted in dark shades, as can be seen on the photo. The colors may also vary: dark blue, ocher yellow, dark green, dark red or dark brown, for example. Thanks to the sometimes extreme weather conditions (drought, heat, heavy rain, cold), the houses are regularly provided with new plaster. So it can happen that you suddenly can not find the house of a friend or acquaintance after he has provided his house with new colors.
