    It’s a wonderful blue, and I wonder at the source of the pigment. A building which seems to have a wonderful air of timelessness about it.

  • not sure about the pigment. Blue doors are quite common and we asked why. We were told “because it looks good”. There may be a reason for the tradition but we were unable to find it.
