The Blue City
With its distinctive palette of blue and white washed buildings, the city of Chefchaouen keeps its cool in a very hot Morocco. Located in the Rif Mountains of northern Morocco, the city is a breath of fresh air when compared to its bigger imperial neighbors to the south. Laid back is how I best describe the place. Its size can be deceiving; I certainly became lost more than once in its maze of vibrant blue alleyways that wind endlessly throughout this mountain town. If you're planning a trip to Morocco, don't skip this mountain town. You won't be disappointed.
