city in Morocco is famous
for one color: there's the blue city of Fes, the green city of Meknes.
There's the 'not so white' city of Casablanca, and the whiter city of
Rabat. And there is the red city of Marrakech. For red it is, down to
the earth-toned cobblestones, and up to the rich red-brownish tan of its
walls and houses. According to local legend, when the great Koutoubia
mosque (see picture below, hiding behind the cat) was planted in the city's
heart, it poured so much blood that all the walls, all the roads and all
the houses turned red. And so the city was baptized... "the red medina".
