Quite a challenge Anna Carson has set us!
I had to delve deep into the archives to look for something black in Morocco.
Other than some tile floors and some women's robes there really isn't much.
Morocco is all about color.
However, I did find these charming pictures from the beach at Essouira.............
.........where water was draining out to sea through dark sand or particles of some sort of sea life.
The resulting designs were almost like trees.
A dark-clad figure walks up derb Dabachi.
This one -- a door on derb Essnane off Mouassine -- is a bit of a cheat, because it's gray -- which is black with a little bit of white in it.........
This floor is just off the square in Essouira.
Actually, quite a lot of new restaurants and newly done up riads and so on feature black and white and neutral colors.
Morocco is a visual feast and sometimes one gets surfeited and needs a little rest.
