snapshots from Casablanca, Morocco…



We had a long – and slow – walk at the weekend.

It was slow because I had my camera with me! 🙂

    • Puu ilmestyi yllattaen silmiini, ihan keskella kaupunkia yhden matalan kerrostalon pihalla.
      On taalla kauniitakin taloja, olen niista postannutkin joskus. Mutta suurin osa on rumia, hylattyja tai muuten jarkyttavan nakoisia, oloisia.
      Rikkaiden talot on muurien takana ja alueilla joissa en mielellani kameran kanssa heilu. Turvamiehia ja poliiseja on sen verran paljon etten viitsi alkaa selitella jos joku jotain kysyisi…
      Aion menna viikonloppuna alueelle missa liikkuu muitakin ulkomaalaisia kuin me ja yritan saada sen alueen elamaa kuvattua. Katsotaan onnistuuko…

      • Loysin nopsasti seuraavat postaukset missa nakyy takalaisia rakennuksia: 8. ja 14.4.2010, 17. ja 31.5.2010, 30.6. On niita muitakin, tuolta ne blogia selaamalla loytyy… 🙂

  1. What an excellent series. I am in love with the black and white shot of the building with the clothesline and the smears and streaks! Also, I just wanted to tell you that I often talk to my family and friends about your posts regarding women’s issues. You have inspired many lively and thoughtful discussions!

    • I’ve never seen anywhere clothes hanging outside from the windows, balconies as much as here. Or maybe in Cairo but here even more.
      They ‘ventilate’ things too. Carpets, beddings…and we get all the shit from above us….nice. Not nice to sit outside in our balcony and have a cup of coffee. No way.

      I’m happy you talk about women’s issues. I just joined a new group and hope to get connected with women all over the globe.
      It’s us, women, who can make the difference.

      By the way. I was watching Al Jazeera news this morning. There was a clip which showed how voting is done by areas > areas with white or black people. That’s not democracy!
      Skin color has nothing to do with democracy. One hispanic guy was interviewed and they are trying to change that. That’s a great goal.
      You voting system looks very difficult and weird to me 🙂

    • Juu ja kaikkea samaa mita muuallakin. Uusin villitys on ‘paukuttelu’. Nuoriso paukuttelee jotain ‘pommeja’ ja ne pelastyttaa lahitalojen ihmiset hengilta. Taalla kaikuu todella mahtavasti kun talot on niin lahekkain toisiaan. Moottoripyorat pitaa lahikatuamme kiitoratana, ajavat myos vastaan liikennetta. Todella vaarallista. Ja epamiellyttavaa.

  2. thanks for sharing the pictures.
    Is Casablanca mostly poor or is there a solid middle class?
    The hand powered grinding wheel is something I would see around here but I can remember them from my childhood.
    We had some things sharpen not too long ago by some local kid that was doing as a business out of his parents house.

    • Mainly poor. Still a lot of people living in VERY poor conditions. But like elsewhere here are poor and rich people and areas.
      Houses are build by hand, with bricks. That labour is cheap. And poor.
      Here are a lot of things what we’ve seen ‘too long ago’ but are still daily life here.
