Photographer's Note

Rabat, Morocco’s capital, is one of the pleasantest places to live, with a great variety of ancient, old and colonial era quarters, a climate tempered by the Atlantic breezes, tree-lined, walkable neighborhoods and, at least throughout the 1990s when I knew it, very few tourists. I remember Rabat as calm, clean and orderly, not least because King Hassan II kept an eye on things – even to having not just the sidewalks but the streets washed and swept. Even the pleasant, nicely organized downtown and the linear souk seemed fairly laid back. I’m sure the pace has picked up over the last decade. However, I understand that the area near the Kasbah des Oudayïas, where I took this image, is still quiet and beautiful. Inside the wall is a neatly kept old quarter of white houses, blue painted parapets and great views.
