Asilah for Caleches by the Atlantic
Asilah for waves
Asilah for sandy beaches
Asilah for Art
Asilah for summer festivals

Gigantic traditional straw hats in all colours
Drivers haggling for 20 Dirhams more
Shouting passionately for 50 Dirhams
Facial features changing to a toothless smile

Gaudy pink carriages
Rickety Caleches
Tassels swinging
Refreshing sea breezes
Sparkling waters

Shocking Pink

Passing dazzling blue and white castellated low walls

The 3 ancient Babs

Another summer
