ESSAOUIRA
In from the town walls

Essaouira, Morocco

Today, the whole meaning of town walls appears pointless. The town thrives both on the inside as well as the outside the walls. The one difference, is that the inner sections are more compact and claustrophobic. The houses here are also more ancient.
