Chefchaouen, Morocco

THE BLUE CITY! This was a very surreal experience. Our tour guide, Mohammed, knew everybody in town, and claimed that he gave a tour to Hilary Clinton back in the day! This city is painted blue not only to make it look absolutely stunning (which I don’t think was any of the reason they actually painted it blue), but to keep it nice and cool during the hot weather. Another very cool thing about Chefchaouen is that it is one of the ONLY cities in Morocco with clean drinking water. I almost didn’t believe Mohammed when he told me, the water water is so clean because they are on a mountain and source the water from there. It was nice to not have to buy a huge water bottle for one point during my two weeks in Morocco.
