Kasbah of the Udayas

For Mimi's last outing we decided to venture a little deeper into the streets of Udaya. The 12th-century kasbah is a beautiful district of white/blue walled houses, and narrow streets that rest above the bay where the Bou Regreg River opens into the Atlantic Ocean. We were told the traditional blue on the walls is meant to repel insects, for some reason mosquitos can't stand the blue! I wonder if is due to a particular ingredient in their paint type. Regardless of the reason I am glad they have continued this tradition consistently through the area, it makes this place even more special. We walked around its streets dazzled by the gorgeous houses, doors and amazing details. I could certainly spend hours here photographing away, I plan to be back with more time and perhaps less wiggly models ;)
