It all looks so fresh and light

3.



Pots with plants in front of the doors and a little boy watching us tourists !

A modern telephone and satellite dishes on the roofs !

5.

6.



beautiful tiles as a separation between the blue and the white

7.



flowers hanging everywhere

8.



The most beautiful garbage container I have ever seen !

10.

I love that architecture of the building. And the color. It's awesome. But the best photo is the last one. :)

Agree with Thom whole-heartedly. Best photo is the last - tired but happy faces!

When I look at European buildings like that I wonder how people lived in them hundreds of years ago.

Have a great day!

That is QUITE a garbage container! I thought it was painted, but when I bigged it to get a closer look it is covered in FABRIC! I hope no garbage "juices" get spilled on it -- then it would really stink!

I love the crispness of the blue & white color everywhere! It really is beautiful.

Ah... the happiness of sightseeing accomplished showing in your faces! I had no idea Rabat looked like that, it's lovely! Reminding me about Greece with it's blue and white, but yet different.

Interesting that Pierres parents has lived there.
