The window from the landing into our bathroom. I had fun putting the bright colored glass in. Now we get quite bizarre reflections on the pink tadelakt (plaster) inside. You can see why we go for rather plain colors elsewhere!
On the whole Marrakech is not big on windows - on the street anyway. Most old houses have a central courtyard with rather small windows looking out into it.
A reflection in the widow at the Musee de Marrakech.
A little window high up near the medersa Ben Youssef
This one will come as bit of a surprise - because in the US and Europe dentists don't usually display their work in the window - more likely dull indoor plants and so forth.
But you can see how this dentist could fill in for where all sorts of disasters have taken place.
If all else fails, you can get the full set from the top shelf above.
Some people come to Morocco because, at the highest level, the work is excellent and far less expensive than elsewhere.
On the lowest level you can have a tooth pulled with pliers in the main square.
I would not recommend this option..........
The window of a little old villa in Gueliz. I'm sure, like all the other charming little villas, this one will not last much longer but be replaced by a five story 'residence'.
