Medinas, or walled, labyrinthine old cities can be found all over North Africa. In Morocco, as elsewhere, they are still very much populated, usually by more traditional folks. Medinas are special: during the day, no cars are permitted entry; the city becomes a maze of high clay walls, throwing sun patterns against each other and keeping the heat out. I got to know quite a few medinas in my time in Morocco. Here are a few scenes of their eccentricities.
