Waiting by the blue doors

In the old city of Essaouira, I wandered around with my tour guide, Jamel. Jamel told me that his name meant "camel" ... the similarity being apparent (once you know). He carried my backpack filled with water and snacks as I drifted around taking photos. The girl sitting alone by the blue doors made me think about her life and what it would ever become.
