Snapshot Morocco: Chefchaouen

It started with a picture. Cla tweeted a picture on flickr of a beautiful town bathed in blue. After a quick Googling and a look at the map, Chefchaouen was added to our itinerary.

Seeing blue

It was a four and a half drive north from Meknes, made slower by the rain that poured nonstop. There’s something about long bus rides and rain that drain one’s energy. Despite not having eaten anything since breakfast, we gratefully sank down our beds to rest and wait for the rain to stop.

Our accommodation here is worlds away from our riad in Meknes, though there is also a significant price difference between the two. We’ve also seen more tourists here in the couple of hours we’ve been here than in the three days we spent in Meknes. It’s also much nosier inside the hostel than in the riad. I really am getting old.

Hopefully the weather forecast is correct and the sun shines brightly tomorrow. Much cat stalking and Facebook profile photo taking will be done.

P.S. I now understand the pain of using an AZERTY keyboard.
