    IN THE MEDINA (AN OLD ARAB TOWN)

    White square houses of Asilah put one by one along narrow passages and streets and located on a high cliff of blue Atlantic Ocean remainded me some parts of Greece.

    But some local houses in Asilah are unique. They have wall paintings painted by local artists. In addition many doors and gates are of typical, Arabic, keyhole shape.

    WHITE IN WHITE :-)

    The jellaba is a loose hooked cloak worn by an Arab men. In contrast to many other moroccan cities, I saw a man in a white jellaba with a hood put on a head many times in Asilah. I was told that Arab men never wear any underwear under jellaba but I am not sure about it.

    THE CITY WALLS AND THE NATIVE :-)

    Natives, I was talking to in Asilah, were very friendly and always wanted to show me directions although they mostly couldn't speak English but Arabic and French. Well, some of them looked a bit strange - enlarge my picture :-))), but I didn't mind, and they didn't harass me in any way.
