During my trip to Morocco this past year, I took a few days from visiting Marrakech to explore the seaside town of Essaouira, a three-hour drive away. Essaouira is famous for its annual Gnawa music festival, seafood, and being a mellow antidote to the sometimes feverish intensity of Marrakech.  To me, Essaouira will always invoke a particular shade of vibrant blue, found everywhere from its fishing boats to its doors and shutters. In fact, artists can buy this powdered pigment from street vendors, which is simply called "Essaouira."
