As a lot of us are spending time more time at home, due to the recent pandemic. I thought I would take this opportunity to post some of my travel photography during my travels around Morocco.
At the beginning of our journey, our route led us to Chefchaouen, situated in the northwest of Morocco. The city is famously known for its blue-washed buildings, which stands out against the striking lush green backdrop, in the Rif mountains. The blue powdered paint was believed to be used as a form of repellent for mosquitoes, as well as a way of keeping their homes cool during the cooler months. Although, many locals culturally believe, it symbolizes the sky and heaven.
Amongst the cobbled lanes, you can find leather and weaving workshops, many markets, home furnishings and local patisserie shops. If you arrive on a Monday or Thursday, you can experience the real local markets and you can pick up many different types of fruits, vegetables, and personal goods all at very good prices.
When visiting the restaurants & cafés, make sure to try the traditional Moroccan mint tea and the many different varieties of tagine upon your visit here.
Love K, xx
