Welcome to The Maldives

Maybe we're politically in peril but that doesn't mean that's all there is to our country.
This blog is made to show the world how beautiful our home is and how much we care about it.
We'll be posting pictures of pretty sceneries and happy happenings around the country.

The Concrete Jungle in the Middle of the Ocean - Male’, Part Two.

The first picture is the source of the electricity in Male’ and most of the islands. It’s only a part of the Stelco company that is shown in that picture and it isn’t showing the smoke and noise that comes with it daily.

Pollution levels of air and environment in Male’ are incredibly high. The sea is used as a trash bag and the air is hard to breathe in with all the smoke from boats, cars, cycles and anything else that is in Male’. And the noise level is also intolerable.

Maldives is a pretty place, yes. But looks can be deceiving. People don’t like to live in places that are ugly and the air is polluted but rather than trying to do anything about it, people seem to just ignore it and hope it’ll go away.

However now there are groups out there in the Maldives that are working hard to make people become aware about how their actions are affecting the environment and even setting up groups that go and clean the beaches regularly. (See: https://www.facebook.com/projectdmgctrl?ref=br_rs)

The Concrete Jungle in the Middle of the Ocean - Male’.

These were taken in the early hours of Friday morning and as you can see, during the campaigning of our Parliament members. Though the posters and the flags pose a serious threat as litter and potential road accidents, somehow it still manages to look so pretty when no one is around on the roads.

Or maybe that’s just me.

We have been incredibly busy, the two people behind this blog. I have been swamped with school work and personal matters and Imy has also been incredibly busy with work and studying.

Thus, the reason why this blog has not been updated for a pretty long time. We are truly sorry.

However we are starting up again and here’s some really recent pictures that Imy took yesterday!

It’s mostly of Male’ though.

This is on a safari trip I went on last year. The trip was free because a family friend was in charge of the boat and he took us with him one day.

It was fun. And I got this rather cool photo when I was taking photos after a little diving and snorkeling.

Surfer Sunrise.

Another Raalhu Gan’du picture. Raalhu Gan’du is known for it’s wave activity and is a popular surfing area in Male’. Sights like this is not uncommon, especially on a Friday!

Here’s a panorama I just stitched right now of some pictures I took at the surf spot (Raalhugandu) in Male’. This was taken a bit after sunset.

Saturday the 10th was quite a day.

It was right after Eid and was a cousin’s wedding day. Because it was held on a nearby island (Kuda Bandos, which isone with an actual beach unlike where I live), I was very excited. Not just for the wedding but because of the fact that I was getting a chance to get away from the concrete jungle I live in.

It was amazing feeling the beach sand under my feet after such a long time. The wedding was the best one I’ve been to so far. There was so much love in the air.

As it turned out, it was the first night of the Perseid meteor shower and that was nothing less of spectacular. Also, for the first time ever, I spotted and photographed the milky way. Here are some of the photos I took on the trip.

P.S. This was my first written contribution to the blog. My excessively busy life has kept me away from here. If we have any active followers, I’d like to apologize. You’ll be seeing me a lot more often around here from tonight onwards. :)

The Tsunami Monument, to the victims of the 2004 tsunami that devastated many countries.

This monument is right next to Raalhu Gan’du, so it’s basically an extension of a hang out for everyone.

This picture was taken on a really stormy day and it has also been edited a bit.
