Photographer's Note

Inside the Casbah of the Oudayas one comes across on section where the colours change from the earthy ochres to the vivid bule. The little streets are narrow and at times one feels as if one is immersed in a sea of blue. What made the experience even more unique, was the absence of locals. Maybe they were having a siesta. It took some time before this boy appeared in my view finder- he seemed to be some sort of delivery person walking with determined steps and carrying some item in his hand. The good thing for me was the red he added to all the blue.

Lonely Planet review for Kasbah des Oudaias

This occupies the oldest part of the city, the site of the original ribat, and commands powerful views over the river and ocean from its cliff-top perch. The kasbah is predominately residential and the narrow streets are lined with whitewashed houses - most of which were built by Muslim refugees from Spain. It's a tranquil and picturesque place to wander and there's no need for a guide. Ignore anyone who advises you that the kasbah is 'forbidden.'
