A walk in the Kasbah des Oudaias

Kasbah des Oudaias is the charming little town inside of the fortress overlooking the Atlantic ocean. It is filled with winding streets scattered with low houses painted in blue and white and the streets are full of life in every corner. Kids are running around laughing and playing behind different doors, you'll find cats relaxing in the sun in the grass and the beautiful Andalusian garden, in the middle of it all, is full of students and loving couples, men reading newspapers and more kids running around and playing games in the scent from full-bloomed flowers and roasted nuts from the old man selling them off his wagon in the park. Inside of this labyrinth of houses and streets, it feels like you are one step closer to the real everyday life of Rabat, one breath closer to the core of the city - and somehow you get a feeling of that whatever happens in between these heavy ochre colored walls, has nothing to do with the rest of the world and vice versa. /Taru

P.S 1: A short movie from inside this town can be found on our Facebook.

P.S 2: Obviously I wore a scarf around my shoulders as we're in a muslim country, just not for the photo.
