Medina
save place
Door covered in dirt.
The doors in the medina open to private worlds, and each has its own personality. This one needs a bath. The little streets are narrow and dirt covered, which isn't helped by the use of donkeys for transportation. They kick up dirt and make, er, dirt.

Another beautiful door.
I must have photographed at least a dozen doors in the medina. They are each unique, and hide the private worlds of the locals, many of which do live and work in the medina, again. The last 10-15 years showed a renewed interest in the medina, as foreigners, mostly Europeans, bought up the old riads and turned them into small boutique hotels or private residences. This brought the locals back as well.

Making lamps
Each lamp design is punched by hand through the brass. The soft, dappled light they make is magical and romantic! There is a whole area just devoted to metal work. One street for pots, one for lamps, etc.
