Hi Gattina,

I love the Kasbah pic! Origninally a Kasbah was a place for the local leader to live and as a defense when the city was under attack. It had high walls which usually had no windows. Sometimes, they were built on the top of hill to make them easier to defend.
These days they are often part of a Medina - where people sell and buy wares. Was this a type of Medina?

Stained windows are always beautiful, it's a pity that you almost only see them in churches.
