Medinas of Morocco

Morocco 2014

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.
