The Kasbah, Tangier. November, 2010

There is mystery wherever you turn in Tangier. Once you’ve managed to work your way into the medina, and through its twisty alleys, stairs and walkways, and wind up at the Kasbah at the top, you may be back in the sunlight, but maybe not in the clear. Who, for example, is that young observer behind those bars, eyeing Dr. Blake? And what are those bars anyway? And look at how blue the sky is. And the sea, even more blue. And the beautiful shape of that opening in the fortress wall. I loved all of the mystery. Jay did not, and he couldn’t wait to get back to the safety of our cruise ship. We’re headed back to Morocco this fall. Back to the mystery.
