Derb Dabachi

I chose this photo for today because it seems so very typical of our neighborhood in Marrakech - what the woman is wearing, the colors of the wall and the paint on the door.
You can see the little shop doesn't seem terribly prosperous but business goes on nonetheless.
The tiles on the floor of the shop are traditional.
The medina has so much charm but sometimes it's gritty and life for some people is very hard indeed.

Odd that you should post a picture with a shop that has the very same colors I'm considering repainting our house in Oregon's High Desert.

A brick red that hopefully won't fade to pink....mustard trim
